Election to Alpha Omega Alpha, the national medical honor society, signifies a lasting commitment to scholarship, leadership, professionalism, and service. A lifelong honor, membership in the society confers recognition of a physician’s dedication to the profession and art of healing. About 3,000 new members are elected each year. Since AOA’s founding in 1902, more than 150,000 members have been elected to the society.
Alpha Omega Alpha supports many programs for medical students and physicians at its 123 chapters and publishes a quarterly journal, The Pharos, which contains articles on nontechnical medical subjects, including history, ethics, and national issues, as well as personal essays and poetry.
