The Oregon Association for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (OAAOM) is the current professional association for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AOM) in Oregon. OAAOM is a revitalized organization that is building upon a strong history of AOM leadership in Oregon and the United States. The presence of AOM institutions of higher education in Oregon for many years has positioned Oregon as a leader in AOM nationally. The OAAOM fills a vital role in enhancing and moving forward the profession within the state.
Under our present scope licensed acupuncturists do not have the ability to order lab work. The OAAOM legislative committee is exploring practitioner attitudes and practices related to lab work and will use this information to inform the activities of the Labs Task Force.
