Twice a year the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society elects a small number of new members. The criteria include scholastic achievement, leadership capabilities, ethical standards, fairness in dealing with colleagues, demonstrated professionalism, achievement and/or potential for achievement in medicine, and a record of service to the school and community at large. Membership in AOA is a distinction that accompanies a physician throughout his or her career.
In the spring the society elects a small number of residents and fellows. The competition is especially stiff for for this group as only two are elected each year.
Edward G. Buckley, MD, AOA Councilor, vice dean for education, School of Medicine, chair of the Department of Ophthalmology, and professor of pediatrics, recently announced the members of the Duke community who were elected to the Duke University School of Medicine chapter of the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society for the spring 2018.
