Alpha Omega Alpha is an academic designation that is bestowed upon those medical students that exhibit exemplary accomplishments in the following categories: medical school exams, medical board exams, clinical rotations, and research.
The top 5-7% of a medical school class is given this honor.
I had the privilege of achieving Alpha Omega Alpha as a medical student at the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine.
Reminiscing back on those years, I think about the long hours I spent each day studying, working in the hospital, and constantly challenging myself. All that effort is completely worth it because it instilled the work ethic I need to be the best dermatologist that I can be for my patients.
Every morning before the clinic begins, I keep up with the latest and greatest in dermatology medical research and treatment options by reading an array of medical journals. Medicine….and life is about constantly learning and improving.
