Frequently Asked Questions

How do I pay dues or make a contribution?

First, you will need your membership number. Your membership number can be located when you search your name in Locate a Member. You can either make a payment on the website, of click on "Printable invoice" and send in a check.

I need a dues invoice/statement. Can I get one from the web site?

After finding your member number, enter it in the Pay Dues or Make a Contribution page. In the window that opens, there will be a link at the top of the page that will take you to a printable invoice.

What does Active/Inactive status mean in the Locate a Member search?

Active members are up to date on their annual dues. Inactive members are not.

I just paid my dues, but I'm still listed as Inactive when I search for my name in Locate a Member. What happened?

Active/Inactive status updates immediately when you pay dues by credit card through our secure site. Please refresh your browser and your active status will show. If you paid by check, there will be a delay due to mail delivery times, and as many as three days after the check arrives in our office.

I am an international medical graduate. How can I become a member?

If you are doing a residency or fellowship at an institution with an active AΩA Chapter, or if you are a faculty member at an institution with an active AΩA Chapter, you may be eligible to be nominated for membership. Click on Chapters in the top tabs to find your affiliated institution. Contact the Councilor of that institution to inquire about eligibility for AΩA membership.

How do I find the Chapter closest to me? Who should I contact there to participate in Chapter activities?

Click on the Chapters tab above, or here to find the Chapter nearest you. Click on the name of the Councilor to send an e-mail to request information.

What are the requirements for starting a new Chapter?

As noted in the Constitution, Article IX, New Chapters:

A Chapter may be chartered at a College or School of Medicine that meets the Society's requirements and has received LCME accreditation. An application signed by the Dean and by at least six members of the Faculty of Medicine who are members of Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society shall be sent to the President along with full information about the school's financial status, admission criteria, curriculum, faculty, and scholarship aid. The President will refer the application to the Committee on New Chapters for evaluation of the application and to make a site visit to the school. Upon receipt of a favorable report from the Committee on New Chapters, the President shall submit the application and recommendation to the full Board of Directors. If the application is approved by the Board of Directors, the proposed charter shall be granted, and the school may appoint a Councilor and nominate junior and senior members after the date of the granting of the charter. Nominations for student membership will be made by the Councilor and the six members signing the application in collaboration with the office of the Dean.

Once a medical school has provisional LCME accreditation, it may begin the process of applying for an AΩA charter, which will be granted once LCME full accreditation is complete.

What does my membership number mean?

Your AΩA membership number is a code that indicates where you were elected, what you were when you were elected, and the year in which you were elected, as in the example below.

Member type:
R = Elected as a student
G = Elected as a resident
A = Elected as alumnus/alumnae
F = Elected as faculty
H = Elected as honorary member
C = Elected as a charter member of a new Chapter

Chapter numbers are listed below. Asterisks indicate AΩA Associations, which may elect residents, faculty, and alumni, but not students. (Stanford University's chapter was inactivated in the 1970s and became an association in 2002.)
