- College of Medicine Student Affairs Students
Twenty medical students were recently inducted into Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA), the national honor society of medical students, which recognizes scholarship, leadership, professionalism and community service. The honorees were celebrated at a virtual induction banquet held March 11.
To be an AOA inductee, students’ academic performance must be in the top 25 percent of their class and abide by the AOA principles of honesty, unselfishness, leadership and a dedication to serving others.
Each year, AOA members select faculty honorees who exhibit dedication to teaching and serve as role models for professionalism and compassion. This year, students honored Dr. Diane Davey, associate dean for Graduate Medical Education and Dr. Caridad Hernandez, professor of internal medicine and founder and director of the Chapman Humanism Initiative in Medicine.
