Alpha Omega Alpha
Junior and senior medical students are selected for AOA membership based on scholastic achievement, first and foremost, followed by leadership capabilities, fairness with colleagues, history of research, potential for achievement, and record of service to both the University and the community at large. Once selected, members are expected to continue to promote scholarship and service through participation in a wide range of community activities and educational programs.
Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS)
The Gold Humanism Honor Society, established at UT Southwestern in 2015, is a national honor society that recognizes medical students, residents, and faculty who exemplify patient-centered care. GHHS inductees are nominated by their peers as models of integrity, excellence, compassion, altruism, respect, and empathy in patient care. The UT Southwestern GHHS Chapter promotes these values on campus with student-led patient outreach efforts, community engagement outside of the health care setting, bolstering of ethics in the formal curriculum, and emphasis of student wellness and faculty mentorship. We welcome the participation of not only students, but also residents, fellows, and faculty who are committed to these tenets of a career in medicine.
