Alpha Omega Alpha is organized for educational purposes and aims to promote scholarship and research in medical schools through the encouragement of a high standard of character and conduct among medical students and graduates. The South Dakota chapter was granted its charter from the national organization in 1978. Members of Alpha Omega Alpha at South Dakota must rank in the top 25 percent of their graduating class with no more than one-sixth of potential graduates elected for membership.
Students elected to the society are judged to have shown potential to become leaders in their profession. Scholastic excellence is not the only criterion for election; integrity, capacity for leadership, compassion and fairness in dealing with colleagues are considered to be of equal significance.
