PhiDE at UCF strongly believes in exposing students to what is ahead of them in their medical education and medical careers. Medical School Tours are an opportunity to network with admissions committees and set expectations for the steps to get to medical school. We organize at least one medical school tour a semester. This spring, several of our members took a trip to Gainesville to visit the University of Florida’s College of Medicine.
The PhiDE International Conventions and Regional Leadership Conferences support student leaders in executing their medically related goals through educational programming and networking learning experiences that are both passive and active.
This is an opportunity to connect with other chapters and share in successes
We will be attending the 2019 Regional Leadership Conference in Atlanta from February 8th to 9th. We encourage as many members as possible to attend.
Phi Delta Epsilon at UCF has the honor to host important speakers at chapter who share valuable insight into the medical field. Speakers provide the opportunity ask experts questions that may not have been answered otherwise. We have also hosted bioethics professors and held Socratic seminars to challenge our own instinct and beliefs.

Phi Delta Epsilon at UCF hosts a variety of skills workshops throughout each semester. This includes collaborations with the Office of Undergraduate Research and the Office of Pre-Law/Pre-Health to provide our members with crucial information about their path to medial school. Past and planned workshops include: CPR, AMCAS, Medical School Application, Resume Development, and Suture workshops.
Phi Delta Epsilon at UCF recognizes the value of undergraduate research and strongly encourages its members to actively participate in research at the undergraduate level. Ask our members about how to obtain research and the advantages of conducting it. Many of our members do research through the Honors in the Major program.
