Alhambra Medical University is an acupuncture and oriental medicine school. Located in the San Gabriel Valley of Southern California, we offer education in acupuncture and oriental medicine.
The Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MSAOM) program started its first class in the spring of 2005. It has grown substantially since and has received approvals with confidence from all the appropriate state agencies especially the California Acupuncture Board in early 2007. This is attributed to strong leadership with clear vision and a committed faculty and staff.
AMU’s programs are grounded in a practical approach to the training of holistic and integrative healthcare providers. Our goal is to educate and train future healthcare providers so they can go on to make valuable contributions to the U.S. healthcare system. AMU is committed to preparing our students to attain the knowledge and skills necessary to practice and conduct research and be leaders in the field. 

AMU is preparing to enter into research with major universities in California, and alliances with a host of other organizations. We strongly believe that we must all work together for the betterment of our community, our world, and ourselves.


Master of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MSAOM) degree program at Alhambra Medical University is a four academic year program (minimum of 12 quarters). AMU has developed a teaching approach integrating Western science and Oriental medicine where students acquire skills rather than learn subjects.

Open to those who satisfy the requirements for admission, students in the program are rigorously trained in Acupuncture, Herbology, Oriental Medical Theory, Western Medicine and Sciences, Tai Ji, Qi Gong, Tui Na, and Practice Management & Ethics.

Master of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine degree is awarded upon completion of 264 units (3120 hours) which includes 2160 hours of didactic and 960 hours of clinical training. In addition, students must pass an integrated competency examination before entering the clinical phase of their education as well as level advancement examinations as they progress through their clinical training. A comprehensive exam prior to graduation and an Academic Exit Interview are also required for graduation.   Read More »
