Welcome to the CA Epsilon chapter of Alpha Epsilon Delta! Founded in 1978 with the goal of promoting interconnectedness within healthcare, starting with pre-health students, we are the only pre-professional health honor society at the University of California, Irvine. Now, more than 40 years later, our members come from varying interests including medicine, pharmacy, physical therapy, nursing, optometry, dentistry and much more. We aim to provide students interested in healthcare a platform to explore the field and to develop excellence in all that they pursue.


At UC Irvine, members of the CA Epsilon chapter embody and stand true to our chapter’s pillars of service, scholarship, and camaraderie. Coming from different backgrounds but uniting under a common interest in the healthcare field, we are each other’s support. We all know how difficult it is to navigate the waters as a pre-health student, but we’ve found the resources and guidance in AED to help us through our undergraduate years and beyond.​​​


On behalf of the Cal Epsilon chapter, I would like to thank you for visiting our website and welcome you to explore our page for more information on our organization, programs, and members. In addition, I encourage you to be a part of the AED family. If you have any further questions or concerns about our honor society, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Alpha Epsilon Delta





AED has been the foundation and the driving force of my college career. This organization has brought me life long friends who have supported me through thick and thin. In addition, AED provided me with professional skills and career advice that has allowed me to gain a deeper understanding of the health field, allowing me to navigate the daunting life of a pre-health student with greater ease. I have been granted job opportunities, research opportunities, and the honor of meeting many health care professionals from the OC area. Through the opportunities provided by AED, I’ve become a more confident student and a happier person. Having people with similar career interests to experience college with gives every moment the potential to become a life long memory. I believe every college student needs to find their home away from home, the place where they can truly be themselves. This place is where you can access your full potential and work towards becoming the person you want to be. My home was Alpha Epsilon Delta, it can be yours too!
