Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society
The membership of this honor medical society is composed of undergraduates who have shown promise of becoming leaders in their profession, graduate members who later have attained such leadership, honorary members consisting of physicians who have attained national distinction, and persons, whether physicians or not, who have gained unusual recognition in fields related to medicine. At least twice a year medical students are elected to membership. To be considered for membership, a student must have completed the foundational sciences and at least four quarters of clinical work and must stand academically in the top 25 percent (based on grades alone) of the class. Generally, one-sixth of the graduating class is elected to membership. View the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society site.
