American Academy of Medical Acupuncture

The American Academy of Medical Acupuncture (AAMA) is the professional society of physicians (MDs and DOs) in North America who have incorporated acupuncture into their traditional medical practice. AAMA currently represents more than 1,300 physician acupuncturists in North American and many others from across the globe who participate as international members.

The AAMA was founded in 1987 by a group of physicians who were graduates of the “Medical Acupuncture for Physicians” training programs sponsored by University Extension, UCLA School of Medicine.
