Samras’ History

In the early 1960’s the antecedent of Samra University was begun by the late Homer Cheng, trained in Western Medicine at the University of Maryland with a clinic in Los Angeles devoted to rehabilitation medicine. Samra University derives its name from the acronym of its parent, the Sino-American Medical Rehabilitation Association, formally chartered in 1969. It’s original purpose was to train medical missionaries working in third world areas in the principles and techniques of Oriental Medicine believing this to be an inexpensive way to augment treatment in economically depressed areas of the world. In late 1979, it became the first acupuncture school in the United States to be approved by the State Medical Board and first to be authorized by the State Department of Education to offer certificates of study and grant degrees in Oriental Medicine. Samra University is also a founding member of the Council of Colleges of acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

Comprehensive Education

Samra University offers a Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine degree with an emphasis on Traditional Oriental Medicine, complimented by Western Medicine.

The university curriculum is comprehensive and includes Acupuncture (Chinese and Korean), Herbology, Oriental Medicine, Western Medicine, Acupressure, Nutrition and an extensive internship. A student can complete their internship at our community clinic or take advantage of other externship opportunities, including externships in China.
