GUIDELINES FOR ELECTION
Junior Medical Students: No more than one-sixth of the class may be elected as juniors. All students must be in the upper twenty-five percent of the class. To aid in assessment of the candidates’ eligibility, an evaluation system based upon the student’s first two years, junior clerkships and the USMLE Step I scores has been developed
Senior Medical Students: The Dean’s office will identify the top 25% of the students in the projected graduating class. Eligible students are invited to submit a one-page summary of their extra-curricular activities, while in medical school only, with these three criteria: research, community service and extracurricular school activities. Volunteers from the A?A membership will review three or four student summaries and serve as those students’ representatives at the fall election meeting usually held in September. Elected students are inducted at a banquet held in March.
