UC BERKELEY ALPHA CHAPTER

CO-ED PRE-HEALTH FRATERNITY

About

What we do

We are, first and foremost, a co-ed pre-medical interest group for undergraduate students at the University of California, Berkeley. Within the society, we have a brotherhood between members who share a common goal of entering the medical field. Members receive exclusive access to lectures and advice from accomplished guest speakers, including members of the admission board of medical schools, and to a network of Phi Chi alumni and supporters for informative and career-seeking purposes. Aside from the academic benefits, we are also members of a brotherhood – we help students form relationships with each other and within the pre-medical undergraduate population through collaboration with groups of similar interests on campus.

Mission Statement

To provide a forum wherein physicians and students of medicine may come together, to their mutual benefit, in a brotherhood seeking the development of the higher qualities of medicine; of nobler impulses of heart; of more profound scholastic achievement; of devotion to the art and science of medicine; and of a communion of kindred hearts pledged to support each other in times of joy, as well as adversity.

History

For 122 years, Phi Chi Society has been one of the oldest international medical fraternities with chapters in graduate schools in five countries. However, at Berkeley, we are the premier undergraduate pre-medical society to exist within the fraternity. With the assistance of the international Phi Chi network, the Berkeley chapter of Phi Chi will redefine both the international graduate society and the expectations of pre-medical societies in the undergraduate divisions. It is both an honor and a privilege to experience history in the making first-hand.
