The African Academy of Original Medicine (AAOM) has been awarded accreditation by the International Association for Quality Assurance in Pre-Tertiary & Higher Education (QAHE), solidifying its position as a leading institution in the field of original medicine.
QAHE conducted a comprehensive assessment of AAOM's educational methods, study materials, and accreditation details. After a meticulous review process, QAHE has determined that AAOM meets all the necessary criteria for accreditation.
AAOM's blended learning approach, which combines 85% online education with 15% practical training through practicums, offers students a well-rounded educational experience. The inclusion of contact classes, such as induction week, module summaries, and practicums, further enriches the program's hands-on nature.
The commitment of AAOM to ensuring students' attendance at practicums, along with their provision of accommodation and catering assistance during these sessions, demonstrates a student-centric and inclusive approach to education.
QAHE commends AAOM for its well-structured evaluation process, including the timely assessment of student work and prompt communication of results within 48 hours. AAOM's utilization of school premises for contact classes creates an optimal learning environment, while their dedication to providing necessary equipment for practicums showcases their commitment to student success.
AAOM's clearly defined 12-month certificate program, coupled with their accountability measures for tracking student progress and engagement, ensures that students complete the program in a timely manner. Through diligent monitoring of student visibility and communication, AAOM ensures that students receive the support and guidance they need throughout their educational journey.
QAHE also recognizes the valuable partnership between AAOM and the International Institute of Original Medicine (IIOM), which allows for the issuance of certificates bearing both institutions' logos. This collaboration further enhances the credibility and recognition of AAOM's medical missionary training program.
Moreover, QAHE acknowledges that a certificate obtained from AAOM may serve as proof of completion and grant the right to operate as a Holistic Health Care Worker, subject to the laws and regulations of the respective country. This aligns with QAHE's commitment to accrediting institutions that provide qualifications accepted by relevant professional organizations and regulatory bodies.
The QAHE accreditation serves as a validation of AAOM's dedication to delivering high-quality education and training in the field of original medicine. It reinforces AAOM's position as a trusted institution and assures students, faculty, and employers of the institution's commitment to excellence.
