Pre-Health Honor Society - Alpha Epsilon Delta
Alpha Epsilon Delta (AED) is an honors society and service organization that is nationally recognized. The local chapter is the Tennessee Epsilon Chapter. Selection is based on academic achievement in a wide range of science courses. Pre-health juniors and seniors are eligible once they have completed at least eight science courses and have maintained at least a 3.2 GPA overall as well as a 3.2 GPA in their science courses.
Students initiated into AED represent a wide variety of pre-health disciplines. Students in AED go on to study nursing, veterinary medicine, physical therapy, osteopathic medicine, allopathic medicine, dentistry and pharmacy. Students are encouraged to submit articles to the AED publication The Scalpel and volunteer as mentors to incoming pre-health students.
The subgroup program run by SHPS, the Sewanee Health Professions Society, is a new program that aims to provide supportive and informative experiences for new and returning pre-health students. AED members are poised to offer great advice on how they succeeded in the pre-health curriculum and are excellent resources for students looking to learn about internships and leadership opportunities on campus.
