Phi Delta Epsilon PreMed Fraternity
Are you pre-med? If so, join the Phi Delta Epsilon (PhiDE) phamily this fall!
PhiDE is UMBC’s only all-inclusive professional medical fraternity. Our local chapter is part of the largest medical fraternity in the world with over 100 premedical and medical chapters since Phi Delta Epsilon’s founding at Cornell University of Medical College in 1914!
Our 40 members can provide you with a great support system, unique mentoring opportunities (like how to do well in your classes and how to study for the MCAT) as well as connections to shadowing, research, clinical opportunities, and thousands of PhiDE-affiliated undergraduate students, medical students, and physicians around the world.
Above all, joining our phamily allows you to make lifelong friendships and memories with a group of amazing individuals!
We meet weekly on Thursdays where we often have guest speakers (alumni, medical students, and physicians) come in to do very informative talks! We also participate together in service projects to give back to the local Baltimore community, and outside of chapter meetings and services, we also like to get bubble tea, grab food, and just have a good time with our fellow fratters!
Please visit our Instagram page @umbcphide or linktree.com/umbcphide to learn more, we are excited to see you in the next upcoming weeks!
