The Annual AAMA Symposium will be held March 27-30, 2025 at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA. The theme of the meeting is “TBD”

The program will focus on a diverse array of topics that are of interest to health care professionals engaged in, or interested in, incorporating medical acupuncture in their practice. The program includes three days of morning plenary presentations, and afternoons feature concurrent workshops on relevant topics.

A number of popular annual events will return for the meeting. These include the Founders Lecture,  Poster Presentation session and plenty of opportunities for networking with colleagues and exhibit companies.

The American Academy of Medical Acupuncture is designing the 2025 Symposium to meet an expressed need to explore the mechanisms of acupuncture from several different perspectives and to examine current scientific research in the field of medical acupuncture. It will address topics suggested by practitioners and stress a variety of approaches to practical clinical problems. Surveys and evaluations from previous symposia indicate there is a desire for more information about acupuncture techniques that honor the rich history of Asian medicine as applied to the contemporary, Western medical practice.

Who Should Attend?

The Symposium is designed for instruction and training of health care professionals interested in, or already practicing, medical acupuncture. Medical practitioners with no experience as well as those with extensive backgrounds in acupuncture will find the program useful to their medical practices.

2025 Accreditation

The American Academy of Medical Acupuncture is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
