Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA), the National Honor Medical Society, was organized in 1902 by students at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Chicago for medical students who have excelled academically and have shown promise of beco
ming leaders in the profession. 

By the AOA constitution, the top 25 percent of each class is eligible for consideration, but only about two-thirds of these students, or one-sixth of the class, may be elected to membership. Scholastic achievement must be balanced by other personal qualities such as leadership, fairness, compassion, integrity and service.

Junior AOA is selected in the spring of the students' junior year. Honors points from the first and second year of medical school are considered. Senior AOA is selected in August/September of senior year, and honors points from the first, second and third year of medical school are considered. To be considered for AOA, students must sign a release before junior selection and submit a CV.
