JACKSON, Miss. – Brandon resident Christopher M. Clark, a fourth-year medical student at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, was unanimously elected to a three-year term as a student member of the Board of Directors for Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society at the national level. Clark serves as president of UMMC’s AOA chapter.

AOA, a professional medical organization, recognizes and advocates for excellence in scholarship and the highest ideals in the profession of medicine. According to its website, AOA is to medicine what Phi Beta Kappa is to letters and the humanities and Sigma Xi is to science.

The top 25 percent of a medical school class is eligible for nomination to the society, and up to 16 percent may be elected based on leadership, character, community service, and professionalism.
