Rich History of AOM

South Baylo University (SBU) was established in 1977 in the City of Los Angeles as a post-secondary educational institution. The University encompassed two schools: the School of Oriental Medicine, and the School of Business Administration. In 1997 SBU spun off the School of Business Administration to California University of Management of Sciences while it remained as the School of Oriental Medicine.

The University moved to Garden Grove, California in the spring of 1982 and incorporated as a nonprofit, public-benefit corporation. In the fall of 1994, the University relocated to its present location in Anaheim, California. As a free-standing, accredited school of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, SBU continued to grow and has become one of the largest and most prestigious AOM schools in the USA.

As a leader in Asian Medicine, SBU provides student-centered education and training based upon the core value of HARMONY. Harmony of Bodily Functions, Harmony of Mind and Body, and Harmony of Life and Nature are the very foundation of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
