Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society

AΩA is the only national medical honor society in the world. Its main focus is to recognize and perpetuate excellence, humanism, and academic achievement in the medical community. The motto of the society, "Worthy to serve the suffering," is an appropriate summation of the individuals who are elected into this most prestigious of medical societies. Its mission is to promote scholarship and research at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, to encourage a high standard of character and conduct among medical students and graduates, and to recognize high attainment in medical science, practice and related fields.

Membership is determined by election. Qualities that are highly regarded are academic excellence, leadership, and service to the medical school and patients. There is no nomination process; all junior and senior students who are eligible academically are considered.

There is also a nomination for Temple alumnae and non-Temple graduates to join the Epsilon chapter. They are determined by nomination by AΩA faculty.
