Criteria for Membership
The top quartile of students is eligible for election to AΩA. From this top quartile of students, each chapter may elect to AΩA membership up to one-sixth of the projected number of students that will graduate. Those students chosen from the top quartile for election are picked not only for their high academic standing, but as well for leadership among their peers, professionalism and a firm sense of ethics, promise of future success in medicine, and a commitment to service in the school and community. By adherence to these criteria it has happened that one or more of the highest ranked students by grade point average have not been elected to the society.
