Three students in the Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho (WWAMI) Medical Education Program have been elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) national medical honor society.
Natalie Eggleston, of Jackson; Kayla Morrison, of Casper; and Lindsay White, of Douglas, all are third-year medical students.
The top 25 percent of each class is eligible to be considered for AOA. The chapter can elect up to 16 percent of the class in total. Students were selected using a process that incorporates their grades; feedback from peers, college mentors and clerkship directors; and information about their service and scholarly efforts.
Election to AOA 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.
The WWAMI program reserves 20 seats each year for qualified Wyoming residents. Students accepted to the program spend their first year on the UW campus and the second year at the University of Washington School of Medicine. The third and fourth years are spent at selected clinical sites throughout the WWAMI region.
