rush: frequently asked questions
Why Phi Delta Epsilon?
PhiDE is the oldest and largest medical fraternity in the world. We are well-recognized and well-established. We have medical and premedical chapters all over the world. Our members have gone on to become doctors, health professionals, deans, professors, and well-respected members of the community. Statistics show that 92% of PhiDE members who apply to medical school are admitted. In addition, we offer Regional and International conventions where you can meet other chapters and alumni. This provides a invaluable experience as you will get the opportunity to network with doctors and other members who have become successful in the healthcare industry. Most importantly, we provide a social and professional support system that is needed in a campus environment.
Who joins/rushes Phi Delta Epsilon?
We are the UC Davis pre-medical chapter of an international medical fraternity. Pre-meds of all majors are welcomed to rush for PhiDE. We highly encourage any student who is actively pursuing a career in the medical field to join. As a co-ed fraternity, members of both genders are eligible.
Does Phi Delta Epsilon haze?
Absolutely not. Hazing is against campus regulations and California laws. Hazing is unacceptable especially for a well-established and well-recognized fraternity like PhiDE. We plan on maintaining its professional aspect by following an anti-hazing policy.
What is the difference between a professional and social fraternity?
Phi Delta Epsilon is a professional fraternity where our aim is to create a bond between future physicians. Professional fraternities offer support and insight into helping their members in academics and professional endeavor. This goal is achieved through professional, philanthropic, and social events.
What is expected of me?
We urge you to put in as much effort possible as it will benefit you and your class. Taking time to interact with other members outside of meetings will bring you closer to the true meaning of brother/sisterhood. Also, we expect you to come out to most, if not all of our events. We understand that everyone has an obligation to academia, therefore exceptions to events will be granted upon early notice, however, please make sure you let us know in advance.
