About Us

South Baylo University (SBU) was established in 1977 as a single purpose institution dedicated to advancing Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (AOM). This is achieved through the promotion of high quality learning, the discovery of new knowledge, and the excellence of AOM clinical application to benefit diverse communities including SBU students, AOM profession, patients, and the public. SBU strive to admit students of exceptional character and academic accomplishment to become competent and caring primary health care practitioners of AOM, scientists, and teachers.

SBU California campuses are graduate institutions that award the Master of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MSAOM) and the Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM) degrees.

SBU is committed to “expanding professional, clinical and scientific knowledge of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine among students, faculty, staff, and the general public through effective teaching, scholarly activity and quality patient care.”

In the spirit of SBU mission, the University opened the Auxiliary Classroom in 2009. The opening of the Auxiliary Classroom introduced a needed quality AOM education to the residents of Fairfax County in the northern part of Virginia.
