SAN DIEGO, CA
The brothers and sisters of Delta Epsilon Mu are committed to serving the community by advocating health education and care and through active participation in service activities, fundraising, and outreach programs in addition to uniting students of diverse backgrounds with interest in the varying health fields through leadership, professional development, and brotherhood. Members are given the opportunity to directly participate in health-oriented workshops and discussions, thereby attaining access to pertinent academic and career information through association with professors, advisors, career professionals, alumni members, and fellow active members.
From the foundation of the four fraternity pillars, we strive to create a community dedicated to service, professional development, and social networking.
Delta Epsilon Mu is the nation’s premier professional pre-health co-ed fraternity. Founded in 1996, Delta Epsilon Mu provides an inclusive and supportive resource for pre-health students and unites like-minded individuals across various health fields through health education and service activities.
The Alpha Lambda Chapter of Delta Epsilon Mu at UC San Diego aims to help every member grow professionally and personally through our four pillars: Loyalty, Dedication, Friendship, and Support. Every individual experiences their own journey while pursuing a career in the health field, but with the friendships established through this community, nobody has to walk the path alone.
When I first came to UCSD, I felt alone and overwhelmed with the limitless possibilities of college. I had an interest in the health field but didn’t know where to begin, and I didn’t really know why I wanted to pursue it. However, after coming to my first recruitment and two years as an active member, I discovered that there are no boundaries in the health field. I found my own meaning and purpose within it as well as a community of ambitious, passionate, and caring people who will give you nothing but their loyalty, dedication, friendship, and support.
So if you’re seeking professional development, looking for a support system, or missing a family away from home, I encourage you to see our fraternity and hear our members’ stories. We’re all excited to hear yours and strive to reach our goals together.

"DEM pushed me to expose myself to considering different health tracks and meeting people I would have never met otherwise. I met my best friends through DEM, and it was easily my best decision I made in college."

“Founding Delta Epsilon Mu has always been a privilege to me because of what it can do for the student body and the community around us. Having the capacity to not only change ourselves but others for the better is our strongest asset. This is legacy I wish to impart.”
