Masters In Oriental Medicine - MSOM
Based on thousands of years of learning, observation and scientific study, the Masters in Oriental Medicine program is a very traditional method of healing for billions of people.
The accredited program offers a modern integrative medicine approach with expanded offerings in Japanese based Acupuncture such as Setai Shinpo and Manual Medicine and a strong business training needed to create a successful practice.
The Hawaii College of Oriental Medicine offers an intensive, 3-2/3 calendar year (11 semester) program, awarding its graduates a Master of Science degree in Oriental Medicine.
Each year is comprised of three 15-week semesters, designed to progressively develop the student’s understanding of Oriental medicine and to expand his/her abilities and competency as a healer.
A new class is admitted each semester in Fall, Spring and Summer. Class sizes are limited to promote extensive interaction with instructors and classmates to optimize the learning experience.
Transfer students may also be admitted at the beginning of any semester if they demonstrate adequate knowledge and skill to merge with the existing class through transfer credit, challenge examination, or favorable assessment by the Dean of AOM.
Our course of study engages students in an active program of didactic coursework, applied techniques and thorough clinical experience.
As student develop knowledge and skills in the classroom setting, they learn how this information is applied by observing senior students and licensed acupuncturists. Thus as interns, students learn how to become principal care givers participating in all aspects of diagnosis, acupuncture treatments and herbal formulation.
