AIMC’s plan for Fall 2021 has been published. The announcement that was shared with students, faculty, & staff can be found in this blog post. The policy itself can be found by clicking the button below. The only major update since 6/25/2021 is that, in keeping with Alameda County public health guidance, masks are required for all persons on campus.
The AIMC Campus is currently open to staff members, students, & patients with scheduled appointments. Per CDHP guidance, as a healthcare facility, we will continue to require temperature checks and masking of vaccinated & unvaccinated patients and practitioners visiting our in-person clinic and inside our building generally. All of our official, current COVID-19 Policies can be found in our COVID-19 Safety & Clinic Manual.
Anyone experiencing symptoms such as a cough, fever, new loss of sense of taste or smell, shortness of breath, or other COVID-19 associated symptom should not request entry into our Campus. Everyone entering the building is required to sign our COVID-19 Self Assessment & Consent to be on Campus Form. If you have visited campus in the last 14 days and begin to experience COVID-19 Symptoms, please notify the AIMC Clinic Director (email@example.com) to provide information about your symptoms and exposure. This information will remain confidential and is only for the purposes of contact tracing and preventing further spread of the novel coronavirus.
Our classes have transitioned to an hybrid online & in-person learning format with many lecture classes offered online and essential hands-on classes offered on campus. While waivers from the Department of Education are still in place, we will continue to offer virtual learning & clinic opportunities for community members that would prefer to continue with distance learning. We will be able to continue this offering through at least the Fall semester and will keep students apprised of any changes for following semesters.
Patients & students who have had prescriptions filled by our in-house pharmacy can pick up their prescriptions on campus without entering the building. Please wait for a confirmation email from our Pharmacy Team that your prescription is ready to be picked up before arriving to campus. Alternatively, prescriptions can be shipped directly to a patient’s home upon request.
The AIMC Library has resumed normal operations. All surfaces are regularly sanitized. Masks are required. Vaccine-exempt students are recommended to observe social distancing guidelines while in the library, and use the facility only during low utilization periods so as to reduce their risk of exposure.
Monday-Friday 9am – 4pm
Books may be returned during the same hours or mailed back to AIMC.
We are currently open for In-Person & Telehealth appointments in our Student Intern & Professional Clinics.
Please visit our In-Person Clinic page to learn more about the protocols in place to protect patients & students from the spread of COVID-19. We are screening all patients entering campus for symptoms of COVID-19 and are not able to treat patients with new, acute symptoms of COVID-19. If you have a chronic condition that causes you to have symptoms similar to those of COVID-19, please notify the Clinic Director and provide the school with the results of a COVID-19 test taken at least a week before entering campus.
If you are seeking an appointment and have new COVID-19 related symptoms, please schedule a Telehealth Consult rather than in In-Person Appointment.
Our Virtual Telehealth Clinic provides free care. These appointments may include an herbal prescription from our in-house pharmacy, movement and mindfulness coaching, dietary & nutritional guidance, acupressure instruction, or other wisdom from the Chinese & Integrative Medicine traditions. Shipping or contactless pick-up available for herbal prescriptions. Patients are responsible for the costs of their herbal formula & shipping if they choose to have an herbal prescription filled by our in-house pharmacy.
"One of my favorite things about AIMC is the sense of community. We come together to support each other through challenges. Instead of a sense of competitiveness between students, there is a caring community that lifts everybody up. The faculty and staff are approachable and provide wonderful support during your graduate journey."- Master’s Student
