Description

The American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AAAOM) was formed in 1981 to be the unifying force for American acupuncturists committed to high ethical and educational standards, and a well-regulated profession to ensure the safety of the public. There was a split in our profession in 1993, when two organizations formed: The American Association of Oriental Medicine (AAOM) and the AOM Alliance. On February 1, 2007, the two organizations again reunited to form a new organization, The American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AAAOM). By taking the name of the organization that split in 1993, the new organization has signaled that events of the past that led to the division have been resolved, and that a new era in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine leadership has arrived.
