The School of Medicine Missouri Delta chapter of Alpha Omega Alpha recently selected 12 new student members who will be inducted into the medical honor society next May.
Selection to the organization is considered an honor recognizing one’s dedication to the profession and art of healing. It is based on character and values such as honesty, honorable conduct, morality, virtue, unselfishness, ethical ideals, dedication to serving others, and leadership. Membership also recognizes excellence in academic scholarship.
Each May, the School of Medicine AOA chapter also welcomes fifth-year students, alumni, residents and faculty inductees who are announced in the spring.
This year’s senior students selected for next May’s induction into the AOA include Himachandana Atluri, Kayla Briggs, Molly Carnahan, Kevin Gibas, Neil Kapil, Susamita Kesh, Deborah Levy, Sean Mark, Luke Nayak, Amina Qayum, Dayne Voelker and Zara Wadood. Two additional sixth-year students will be selected to join the 2017 Class prior to the induction ceremony in the spring.
New members of the organization are invited to participate in an induction celebration that takes place at Diastole.
