Message from our President
Welcome to Phi Delta Epsilon, CA Iota, UC Berkeley’s Premier Co-Ed International Medical Fraternity!
My name is Hawk Azordegan and I am honored to lead such a dedicated group of individuals who are committed to pursuing a career in the medical field. I am currently a third-year student here at the University of California, Berkeley, majoring in Molecular and Cell Biology with a minor in Data Science. I have a great passion for healthcare and hope to pursue Dermatology or Plastics in my medical career.
Finding a sense of belonging and community in college can be difficult, especially when it comes to finding the right organizations to join. Entering my sophomore year–after spending my first year at Cal in isolation–I had a weak connection to my campus community. I felt lost and alone in a sea of unfamiliar faces, drowning in my large weeder courses. But for me, that all changed when I joined PhiDE that fall. PhiDE gave me a strong friend group to support any endeavors I choose to pursue, the resources I needed to excel in my studies, and well rounded professional development. Joining this organization was the best decision I could have made, and I couldn't be more grateful to be a part of such an amazing community.
Our fraternity is dedicated to providing support, guidance, and resources to our members as they navigate the challenging premedical journey. I am excited to announce that this year we will be hosting several events and initiatives to help our members excel academically and professionally. These include guest speaker events, study groups, and networking opportunities with medical professionals and PhiDE alumni.
My pbros and I have formed a tight-knit bond over the semesters since we first joined Phi Delta Epsilon and I have met my best friends here. The experiences we shared during our New Member Process brought us closer together and helped us to understand and appreciate one another on a deeper level. As we have progressed through our premedical studies together, we have supported each other through the challenges and celebrated each other's successes. We have formed a unique bond that is built on trust, respect, and mutual understanding.We have shared many memorable moments together, from late-night study sessions to bonding over shared interests and hobbies. We have become more than just members, we are a phamily :). I am incredibly grateful to have found such a strong and supportive community which I now hope to lead to even greater success.
I am confident that with the support of our fraternity and the dedication of our members, we will continue to achieve great success in our premedical studies and in our future careers as medical professionals. I encourage you to check out our website and come out to rush! We can not wait to meet you all and answer any questions you may have.
