Alpha Omega Alpha

Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) is the only national medical honor society. The society was created to honor students, residents, and alumni who have shown excellence in their field. The AOA at SUNY Health Science Center at Brooklyn is the Eta chapter for New York.

The AOA is open to all eligible COM students.

Commensurate with its goal of elevating academics, students are allowed to present their research findings and one student from the M.D. and one from M.D./Ph.D. category are selected to go on to the statewide competition. Each winner also receives a monetary award of $100.

Other events sponsored by the AOA are the Journal Club, Subspecialty Information Forum, and the annual AOA guest lecture and dinner. The Subspecialty Information Forum is held with the respective chairman of the specialty department. The annual lecture precedes the dinner and is given by a distinguished guest on a pertinent topic.
