At American Institute of Alternative Medicine, we believe your success is our success: The American Institute of Alternative Medicine is committed to providing the highest quality of education possible. Each of our three programs values an extensive focus of hands-on clinical approaches throughout all AIAM curricula. AIAM is a pioneer in providing an educational environment that integrates the best of both Eastern and Western healing modalities. At the heart of all our programs is the desire and commitment to help our students treat the body, mind and spirit of each client.

School History: AIAM was established by Helen Yee and Diane Sater in 1994 as a school of alternative medicine, focused on the philosophy of holistic remedies and health education. Their goal was simple: Provide students with the highest quality education and prepare them for rewarding careers steeped in the traditions of holistic medicine and homeopathic remedies. They continue to hire faculty who are able to teach students to help people heal, handle pain and stress, and improve their quality of life. Students who seek to be registered nurses, practical nurses, acupuncturists or massage therapists can get the education they need to be successful in the medical field.

Diane and Helen strive to ensure that students have the best opportunity to get a top education at a reasonable cost. Under their active leadership, AIAM continues to increase its enrollment, create innovative programs, develop a solid reputation and offer acupuncture and massage clinic services. Hence, employers in the area are eager to hire AIAM graduates for positions in alternative medicine. If you choose a program at AIAM, you’re very likely to find yourself on a first-name basis with our founders.
