Message from Our President
Welcome to Phi Delta Epsilon, CA Iota, UC Berkeley’s Premier Co-Ed International Medical Fraternity!
My name is Na’im Pierce and it’s a privilege for me to lead such a motivated group of people who plan to become physicians. I’m a 3rd year student here at University of California, Berkeley
studying bioengineering with a concentration in cell and tissue engineering. I'm passionate about medicine, providing equitable accessibility to healthcare, and hope to pursue neurosurgery in my medical career.
Being at such a large educational institution it’s difficult to find a community with passions that align with your own. I came to this realization during the fall semester of my first year and fortunately came across this amazing organization. My sense of loss vanished after joining Phi Delta Epsilon. I and my fellow class members were welcomed with celebration and open arms, sparking lifelong friendships, providing 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 lifelong bonds over the semesters 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 physicians. I encourage you to check out our website and come out to rush! We can’t wait to meet you all and answer any questions you may have.
