NEBRASKA ALPHA CHAPTER - SCHOLARSHIP AND AWARD PROGRAMS

The Nebraska Chapter of AOA annually recognizes three outstanding seniors in the medical school class. Each award includes a stipend. They are:

  • Senior Scholar
    The highest GPA in four years of medical school.
  • Clinical Scholar
    The highest GPA in the junior and senior year of medical school.
  • Senior Thesis Award
    The outstanding thesis by a senior.

Beginning in 2000, the senior class of the medical school gave a new award called "Outstanding Volunteer Clinical Faculty Member". This award is presented annually to recognize a community physician who contributes with distinction to the education and training of clinical students. Dr. William Packard of Scottsbluff, Nebraska, was the first person to receive this award.

Each year AOA contributes money to the University of Nebraska Medical Center's Library of Medicine for book purchase and general supply.
