MLS Honor Society

  • 1.  MLS Honor Society

    Does anyone have any information on an honor society for medical laboratory science students? I found that several schools have a Lambda Tau chapter, but I cannot find any information on how to start a chapter.

    Thanks!

    The University of Mississippi Medical Center has an Alpha Eta Chapter which is an honor society for allied health professionals with 89 chapters nationwide. Our MLS students are eligible for induction.  Student membership is limited to graduates who have an overall grade point average of 3.50 or better and is limited to no more than 20 percent of the class for each year.

    The Alpha ETA Society is a National scholastic honor society for allied health professions. information can be found on the Association of Schools of Allied Health (ASAHP) website at:
    http://www.asahp.org/alpha-eta

    ASAHP also recently gained a Student Assembly  that was developed by for students- see http://www.asahp.org/sa-about-us.

    Both the Alpha Eta and the Student Assembly are good venues especially because students involved gain  interprofessional perspectives and are best able to network and share the importance of our profession.

    I hope this sheds some light.
