Words from Our President
We are the California Theta chapter of Alpha Epsilon Delta, the premier pre-health honor society and co-ed professional fraternity at the University of California, Los Angeles. In hopes to connect students of different healthcare interests, Theresa Kim, Wendy Chen, and John Cho founded the organization in 2003. Fifteen years later, we are now proud to have members pursuing a variety of careers in the healthcare field, including medicine, dentistry, optometry, pharmacy, nursing, veterinary medicine, public health, physician assistant, and many more. The diversity of passions within our chapter creates a safe space for members to learn from each other as they further explore the vast opportunities of the healthcare field and carve their own, unique paths.
As an organization, we value our three tenets of service, scholarship, and camaraderie. Our members are able to impact our surrounding community through the programs we offer, including our Basic Life Support program, Academic Tutoring Program, MyUCLAHealth Ambassadors program, annual HAPY Health Fair, and international medical mission trips. Additionally, members have access to textbook and test banks, resources specific to different career paths, and opportunities to network with various healthcare professionals, students, and alumni.
Although we offer a space for academic and professional growth, we are most importantly a community—a solid support system for each other. Being a pre-health student at UCLA is undoubtedly challenging, but the journey becomes significantly more manageable to navigate with the help of our brothers. After joining my first year, I have made lifelong friendships thanks to Alpha Epsilon Delta, and I can confidently say that we work together, struggle together, but also succeed together.
Please feel free to continue exploring our website, where you can learn more about our organization, programs, and members. Thanks for reading, and if you are interested in becoming a part of our family, come to our rush events throughout the year! Have an amazing school year, and go Bruins!
