AΩA Honor Medical Society
AΩA is a National Honor Society recognizing and advocating for excellence in scholarship and the highest ideals in medicine. The values of AΩA include: honesty, honorable conduct, morality, virtue, selflessness, ethical ideals, dedication to service and leadership in addition to scholarship and academic excellence. AΩA notes that it is similar to what Phi Beta Kappa is to the letters and humanities and Sigma Xi to science.
The UConn School of Medicine is establishing an AΩA chapter with implementation pending a site visit from AΩA. The first student members from the Class of 2019 will be selected no later than the fall of 2018, in time for AΩA to be noted on the ERAS application and supportive materials.
