History

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. From these modest beginnings, Alpha Epsilon Delta has become the world’s largest Honor Society exclusively serving premedical education, with a membership exceeding 144,000 in 186 chapters.

AED provides pre-health students with valuable information and assistance in their quest for a career in health care. Weekly meetings provide excellent information from leading professionals in the medical field. In addition, our peer network assists in many aspects of a pre-health degree such as: tutoring, teacher recommendations, MCAT tips, course scheduling, and social events!!! Please stop by and see what AED has to offer you.

“The mission of the Society is to encourage and recognize excellence in premedical scholarship; to stimulate an appreciation of the importance of premedical education; to promote communication between medical and premedical students and educators; to provide a forum for students with common interests; and to use its resources to benefit health organizations, charities and the community.” - AED National Office
