    Anyone mind translating the 3 dozen or so acronyms for the different med schools and programs people constantly talk about on this site. I know easy ones like the UC's and UVM but cannot figure out what SLU and a host of other ones are. I think it'd be a good idea to have an SDN glossary of terms for newbies like me. I'd be able to start researching schools more if I knew what they were. Something as easy as:

    UCI - University California Irvine
    UVM- University of Vermont

    would be great! Thanks a lot.

    Ask for some specific ones if you can't figure them out. <a href="http://www.aamc.org/data/facts/famg32001.htm" target="_blank">Here</a> is a list of schools to use as a reference.

    Obviously the blanks are ones that I dont know. Then again, there's probably a grip of them out there that I dont know. So if you guys wanna add any Id greatly appreciate it because I pretty much only listed the ones that I know or that I am aware of. Thanks!

    Anyone know what AOA is and/or why you need it for some residency programs?

    Alpha Omega Alpha

    It's an honor society for med students (think phi beta kappa)

    <a href="http://www.alphaomegaalpha.org/" target="_blank">http://www.alphaomegaalpha.org/</a>

    Another AOA is for Osteopathic Medicine

    1) The osteopathic definition above
    2) Alpha Omega Alpha--medical student honor society (allopathic definition)
