The Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine (SIOM) is a single-purpose graduate college located in Seattle, Washington's Greenlake neighborhood. It is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine[1] and authorized by the Washington Higher Education Coordinating Board[2] to award the degrees of Master of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine or Master of Acupuncture.[3] SIOM's clinic-based educational program trains future practitioners in acupuncture, tui na, shiatsu, Chinese herbal medicine, and Chinese medical language.

SIOM operates a teaching clinic and herbal dispensary where graduate students observe experienced practitioners or practice under their supervision. More than 100 patients are treated each week at SIOM's clinic.[4]
