Delta Epsilon Mu (ΔΕΜ), or DEM, is a professional, co-ed pre-health fraternity for undergraduate college students in the United States who are interested in or currently study in the pre-health field. It was founded in 1996 on four principles: loyalty, dedication, friendship, and support.[1] There are currently chapters in New York, California, Maryland, Florida, Virginia, Washington DC, Kansas, Texas, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, Rhode Island and Washington.[2]

Purpose

The organization was initiated with the goal of uniting students interested in entering various health professions. The brothers and sisters of Delta Epsilon Mu are committed to serving the community by advocating health education and care through active participation in service activities, philanthropy, and outreach programs.

Membership

Members of Delta Epsilon Mu are united by the common goal of a future professional interest in health and healthcare. The undergraduate experience is varied between the various health pre-professional fields from pre-dentistry to pre-veterinary studies, but with the common goal of making a social impact through the various health fields.

Alumni members have gone on to various professional schools such as medical school, osteopathic school, and graduate studies in public health. Although these members are no longer considered active members in the organization viz. non-voting at the chapter level, they are usually active participants in mentorship of active members and represent the organization's commitment to producing well-rounded members of the healthcare professional workforce.

National Leadership

Delta Epsilon Mu held its first National Convention in 2013 whereupon its bylaws were ratified and the first elected Executive Committee was elected. Then Executive Committees' voting power is supplemented with a voting undergraduate and alumni member from each chapter, forming the Board of Directors.[3]
