Aequitas Health Honor Society

The Aequitas Health Honor Society at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine was established to recognize and honor members of the VTCSOM community who consistently work to promote health equity in our local community. Rising 4th fourth year medical students, post-graduate trainees including residents and fellows, and faculty are eligible to apply.  

Students are required to have shown significant dedication to health care equity and post-graduate trainees and faculty must have contributed to health equity. Medical students chosen as Aequitas Health Fellows will work together on a service project that advances health equity in our community during their final year of medical school at VTCSOM.
