Welcome to AIMC Berkeley! We are happy you are curious about our unique college. We promote an integrative approach to medicine by offering strong Western medicine courses and cutting edge clinical experiences in Western medicine settings. We offer a diversified curriculum that incorporates mind body and spirit. We are extremely proud of our succesful Masters program and are excited about our First Professional Doctorate that will be offer in the Fall of 2018.
We provide a supportive culture for you to realize your unique mission as a healer—to create for yourself what I call “tailor-made-medicine.” We offer an environment that encourages each student to put their singular imprint on medicine.
One of my core values is my commitment to our students’ needs. Sometimes that is quite literal: I provide our students with snacks every day and lunches during finals. This is just one of the ways I welcome students into our warm and inviting community.
The Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine College-Berkeley formerly known as Meiji College of Oriental Medicine (MCOM) was established in San Francisco in 1990 by the Meiji School of Oriental Medicine in Japan and its alumni. The first class was enrolled in September of 1991. In January 1999, the school relocated to Berkeley in order to provide its students with a higher quality facility and a better educational environment. In 2002, Dr. Shuji Goto assumed an appointment as a chairman of the board for the MCOM. In April 2003 the name of the school was changed to Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College, Berkeley (AIMC Berkeley) and new management has started under the new chairman’s leadership. Through the introduction of curriculum of Japanese Acupuncture and Kampo Medicine, the goals were set to take a leadership role for further development of Asian Medicine in the US. These efforts were also aimed to bring synergy effects on Acupuncture and Kampo Medicine in Japan for further spread and development of Japanese Traditional Medicine. It was accredited by ACAOM under its new name in May 2004.
Today AIMC continues to develop its programs and professional affiliations. In January 2017 we launched a new MSOM that improved the curriculum and streamlined the program so that it could be completed in 10 terms, or a little over 3 years. We have also developed a First Professional Doctorate degree that will ve launched in Fall 2018.
AIMC Berkeley prides itself on our accomplished faculty, our inclusive student community, and our integrated approach to medicine.
