Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH) is has announced a new partnership with the AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine. MUIH and AOMA have entered an educational collaboration with the goal of enhancing graduate education in acupuncture and Oriental medicine. Through this partnership students from both institutions participate in case study analyses together, virtually in real-time and guided by faculty from both institutions. This provides students with the opportunity to broaden their clinical treatment strategies and deepen their clinical knowledge.
“This is an academically enriching partnership that we are excited to have in place. Both institutions are committed to academic rigor and integrative health, and this partnership will represent an effort toward academic diversity of thought in diagnosis and treatment approaches. This will serve the faculty, students, and ultimately, patients,” said Alexandra York, assistant provost for strategic academic initiatives at MUIH.
“What we learn from one another and what we learn together will help us transform care. Partnerships like this will strengthen our ability to prepare truly outstanding clinicians who will put our values into action and fulfill our mission of transforming lives and communities,” said Dr. Mary Faria, president and CEO of AOMA.
MUIH has been training acupuncturists since 1981 and in 1985 became the first school accredited by the organization now known as the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM).
