AIMC

by Anonymous

Sometimes it is difficult to tell the truth and be in good taste but I will try. I am a graduate of AIMC (Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine College, Berkeley) and am saddened to say that attending this school was the most horrible experience of my entire life. It was a great challenge to decide which acupuncture college to attend.


I, and many of my fellow students, made the wrong choice and we have all paid dearly for it. It is difficult to go into details without sounding negative. I applied at two colleges and was accepted by both. In retrospect, I wish I had attended the other college, OCOM, which is truly an incredible place with stability, spirit,and true standards of excellence.

The study of Chinese medicine is a great and worthy path. Don't be hasty in your choice. Allow yourself to see below the surface appearances - examine the real history of the school. Just because a college is accredited by ACCAOM does not mean that it is a great school. I will always be ashamed to have received my diploma from AIMC. Hopefully,you will have the wisdom to do better than I.

I am seriously looking for a good acupuncture program. I am debating between PCOM, OCOM, and AIMC. It's hard to find personal experiences for acupuncture schools. Can you please give a more in-depth review of AIMC? How come your experience was so negative? I want to pick the best school. Thank you so much.

You can email me at haligows@hawaii.edu

To hear about anyones acupuncture experience would be amazing. Thank you completely.

sounds like Midwest College of Oriental Medicine-Chicago

There are too many details to list without coming off as negative and nit-picky. My MCOM experience sounds like your educational experience.

If someone is considering going to AIMC, and find this page on Google, what will that tell them? Why not explain what was so bad about it?
