Phi Delta Epsilon is an international medical fraternity whose mission is create physicians of integrity with a life-long commitment to our guiding principles of philanthropy, deity, and education through fellowship, service, mentoring, and formal training in leadership, science, and ethics.
The fraternity began in 1904 at Cornell University Medical College by Aaron Brown. At the time of Phi Delta Epsilon's founding, medical fraternities were extremely exclusive. Aaron Brown, a Jewish medical student, was banned from joining these fraternities and began a new fraternity that is all-inclusive and continues to be so.
The New York Kappa chapter of Phi Delta Epsilon was chartered in 2009. Our members are compassionate, driven, honorable, dedicated team members invested in helping each other learn and grow. We focus on helping each other do well in all their endeavors, do good for the community, and do better by always achieving more. The fraternity is designed to provide opportunities to learn and explore possibilities in the medical field, foster relationships with physicians and students,and provide resources for outreach in the community.
