Phi Delta Epsilon's Mission Statement
Phi Delta Epsilon International Medical Fraternity creates physicians of integrity with a lifelong commitment to our guiding principles of philanthropy, deity, and education through fellowship, service, mentoring, and formal training in leadership, science, and ethics.
Philanthropy, Deity, Equity & Education
"Facta Non Verba, Deeds Not Words"
We hold these values as our legacy, and hope to not only embody these values as physicians in the future, but to inspire future generations to do so as well.
Our main philanthropic event every year is our Children's Miracle Network fundraiser, where we raise funds to help our local CMN hospital, Children's Hospital Oakland. CMN is a nonprofit organization helping to raise funds for over 170 children's hospitals worldwide. Our annual contribution helps fund medical care, research, and education that helps save and improve the lives of 17 million children each year. CA Iota has historically raised thousands of dollars each year in service to CMN to honor and support the work they have done, and we continue to do so every year.
As a fraternity, we pride ourselves on our commitment to our guiding principles of Philanthropy, Deity, Equity, and Education. Our members are involved in, hold leadership positions, and help drive change in many extracurricular activities on campus, including SAGE Mentoring, SLC Tutoring, Seed of Health, Highland Health Advocates, and many more.
In addition, our active members are exceptionally hard working and academically focused, with an average GPA far above their major averages and the UC Berkeley average, and many having multiple majors and minors. Our actives also balance challenging course loads with many professional activities such as work in research labs, consulting internships, doctor shadowing programs, and many more!
