Master of Science in Oriental Medicine Course of Study

Diane received a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine in Austin, TX from the Academy of Oriental Medicine of Austin (AOMA). The course of study included a total of 2,280 hours over a six year period. Training included a demanding Western science curriculum enabling her to communicate effectively with Western medical practitioners regarding the diagnosis and treatment of patients who may be undergoing concurrent Oriental and Western medical treatments.

Clinical training begins with observation which enables the student to become familiar with the flow of acupuncture treatment. Training continues with “clinical theaters” in which observation of patient treatment is viewed as it is administered by acupuncture professionals. After passing the clinical competency examination, treatment begins with the requirements of seeing 450 patients and an additional 1,044 clinic hours of patient hands on treatment. Students drive the herbal and acupuncture treatments under the direct supervision of seasoned clinical doctors.

Herbal Training

Herbal Training is designed by highly trained Chinese herbologists with years of clinical experience. AOMA’s Herbal Training curriculum exceeds the national requirements. Classical texts provide the foundation of the material. Herbal training is further enhanced at AOMA by the use of herbs in their raw form. AOMA’s pharmacy stocks hundreds of individual raw herbs in addition to many Chinese patents and formulas.

As a second year student, Diane was trained in the use of prepared formulas or patent medicines. In her third year of study, once a thorough understanding of Chinese medical theory had been obtained, she began to prepare and prescribe herbal formulations made from raw herbs. Students are taught to adjust and modify classical formulas to suit the condition of individual patients. 432 hours of Chinese Herbal Training was obtained with an additional 72 hours required in the completion of Chinese Herbal Clinical Practicum.

Oriental Bodywork Training

AOMA is one of the few schools in the country that requires Oriental bodywork as an integral part of the curriculum. The Oriental Bodywork Program is approved by the American Oriental Bodywork Therapy Association (AOBTA). The Oriental Bodywork curriculum, led by Pamela Ferguson, is based in the philosophy and application of Oriental medicine and the harmonization of Qi/Ki energy. Pamela Ferguson, RMT, OBT is certified as a Zen Shiatsu Instructor by the American Oriental Bodywork Therapy Association and the Society for Shiatsu, Germany (GSD). Pam is a graduate and former instructor of the Ohashi Institute, New York City, and a graduate of the Asten Center in Dallas, TX. She travels widely each year to teach Shiatsu in the USA, Canada, Switzerland and Germany. She has published her seventh book, The Self-Shiatsu Handbook that was published in 1995 in North America, Germany and the UK. Diane was able to study with Ms. Ferguson while attending AOMA.
