Welcome to Texas A&M University's chapter of Alpha Epsilon Delta. We are a Pre- Health Honor Society that caters to students who wish to pursue a career in healthcare. As a tight-knit group of like-minded individuals, we provide a resource for those in the path to becoming healthcare providers. We invite speakers, ranging from local doctors to Deans of Admissions for professional schools, to provide valuable information and educate our members. As an organization, we take part in many volunteering activities, socials, and events throughout campus to further strengthen the relationship between each other.
On April 28, 1926, fifteen premedical students at the University of Alabama met with Dr. Jack Montgomery, premedical advisor and professor of organic chemistry, to formalize the organization of a new premedical honor society. Baylor University, Samford University, the University of Texas, and the University of South Carolina established chapters in 1928/29. At the first national convention at the University of Alabama on April 18, 1930, ten members representing five chapters and one petitioning group were in attendance. From these modest beginnings, Alpha Epsilon Delta (AED) has today become the world’s largest Honor Society exclusively serving preprofessional health students, with a membership exceeding 150,000 in 188 chapters. The Society is incorporated in the District of Columbia as a non-profit, educational organization.
Alpha Epsilon Delta is the Pre-Medical Honor Society dedicated to the encouragement and recognition of excellence in the preprofessional health scholarship of medicine.
AED offers opportunities for intellectual and professional development, provides a forum for students with common interests, and extends an ample program of service to benefit the community.
