Purpose

The purpose of the pre-health aspect of AED is to provide members with unmatched opportunities to prepare them for their professional school of choice. It is a very versatile and flexible tenet of AED, since students have a lot of say in the types of events they want to see. Pledges are required to get 10 points and actives are required to get 7 points.

The Princeton Review Scholarship

  • All members receive $200 off TPR test prep courses. Go into their office at Dobie Mall and tell them you are with Alpha Epsilon Delta

  • AED received 4 half-off scholarships and 1 full scholarship throughout the year, which is awarded to students based on an application process.

Study Hours

  • Wednesdays, 8 - 10 PM, CBA 4.344

  • 1 point, with a max of 3 points per semester

  • TUTORING: If you would like to tutor at study hours, you may be compensated 1.5 points per hour.

Health Professions Networking Event

  • This is one of our largest events of the year, co-hosted with Kappa Rho pre-medical honor society. Together, the two organizations bring around 30-40 health professionals to a formal event in which out students are exposed to different fields and can network with health professionals who work throughout the Austin Area.

Article Discussions

  • Article Discussions & TED Talks allow us to be up to date with current medical advances, public health issues, and important issues in the field of health. They consist of 1 leader, who will present the article, and facilitate a discussion amongst 10-15 students.

  • 1 point for attending

  • 2 points for leading

Mentorship

  • In order to facilitate discussion amongst our members and allow our older members to pour into the lives of our younger members, we have a mentorship program set up for anyone interested in taking part. There is an application every semester and you are matched based on your year, pre-health field, and interests.

Workshops

  • We host several workshops throughout the semester, exposing students to different fields of interest. Older members with experience in a certain field may host workshops for extra points

  • Access slides from previous popular workshops here:
