On Monday, April 22, 2013, eight students from the AU/UGA Medical Partnership were recognized as some of the newest members of Alpha Omega Alpha and Gold Humanism Honor Society.


Alpha Upsilon Phi

Alpha Upsilon Phi was founded at the Medical College of Georgia in 2008 to promote and recognize service and leadership efforts by our students, faculty, and staff. We believe service and leadership are essential experiences in the development of well-rounded health care professionals. We anticipate an expansion of the service and leadership opportunities already available thereby promoting a richer sense of campus culture as we work together to serve our community.

Alpha Omega Alpha

Alpha Omega Alpha, commonly referred to as AΩA, can be thought of as the "Phi Beta Kappa for medical schools." As the only national honor medical society, its mission, developed over the past one hundred years, has been to recognize and enhance professionalism, academic excellence, service, and leadership within the profession. Election to Alpha Omega Alpha is an honor signifying a lasting commitment to scholarship, leadership, professionalism, and service. A lifelong honor, membership in the society confers recognition for a physician's dedication to the profession and art of healing.
