The National Scholastic Honor Society for the Advancing
Health Professions (Association of Schools Advancing Health Professions)
The purpose of the Society shall be the promotion and recognition of significant scholarship, leadership, and contributions to the advancing health professions. Our chapter has grown to include members from various disciplines within the School of Public Health and Health Professions. These include Athletic Training, Dietetics, Occupational Therapy, and Physical Therapy programs.
Founded in 1975, The Alpha Eta Honor Society recognizes and promotes significant scholarship, leadership, and contributions to the Advancing Health professions at collegiate institutions. Undergraduate and graduate students in their last academic year of enrollment, alumni and faculty meeting the national and chapter qualifications, can be nominated for membership in the Society by members of the local chapter. The UB chapter was chartered in April 1975, with the initial members inducted in 2010.
Nominations for Alpha Eta are made by faculty members during the fall of a student's final year of their academic program. Each nominated student will be contacted by the Alpha Eta Chapter President notifying them of their nomination and explaining the application process. Please note that only 20% of all eligible students can be inducted into the UB Chapter of the Alpha Eta Honor Society.
Graduate students with an overall GPA of 3.5 or better are eligible for nomination. Nominated students will be evaluated based on their academic performance, leadership, service, and scholarly activity.
