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. The AAMA was founded in 1987 by a group of physicians who represented both East Asian and Euro-American styles of acupuncture, most of whom were graduates of the "Medical Acupuncture for Physicians" training programs sponsored by University Extension, UCLA School of Medicine. 

Membership requirements for the Academy have been established in accordance with the training guidelines established by the WHO-recognized World Federation of Acupuncture and Moxibustion Societies (WFAS). The Academy represents the highest standards of training and proficiency among physicians practicing in North America. The AAMA currently represents more than 1,300 physician acupuncturists in North America and many others from across the globe who participate as international members. 

AAMA Mission: The American Academy of Medical Acupuncture is the professional organization of allopathic and osteopathic physicians that advances the evidence-based integration of the practice of medicine and acupuncture to serve our patients.

We invite you to explore this website to learn more about acupuncture and about membership in the American Academy of Medical Acupuncture.
