PhiDE Inaugural 2020 Leadership Institutes
Thank you for a great 2020 Leadership Institute (LI). Held in Chicago, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles, our institutes were full of great moments. Check out the link below for photos!
What is a Leadership Institute?
An institute is an immersive living-learning experience rather than a conference where students choose an individual learning path. Chapters spend the entire weekend participating in activities, having tough but important discussions about the state of their chapter, and progress through the curriculum together. Through exploration of critical issues in thought-provoking activities, the program is intended to help identify the leader students want to be and where they can make the most impact in their chapter and community while preparing for their journey in medicine. Together they will define the challenges that our Fraternity faces today, and leave excited to address those challenges back on campus – all while developing skills that are useful in and out of PhiDE life.
About our 2020 Leadership Institute
The topics of discussion at the Leadership Institute focused on our knowledge that values are our core competency, continued education and narrative medicine helping to ensure connectivity. Together, these connect to the idea that Fraternity is something of inherent purpose. During our meetings, attendees explored what it means to live Facta-Non-Verba: Deeds not words. They left each weekend empowered with key resources to identify, address, and begin to resolve concerns within their chapter.
The Award of Excellence started in 2007 and is awarded to all chapters nominated that transcend our standards of excellence in academics, service, program events, philanthropy, chapter operations, and dedication to the practice of medicine. These chapters will also emanate the spirit and camaraderie of PhiDE.

Phi Delta Epsilon Medical Fraternity creates physicians of integrity with a lifelong commitment to our guiding principles.
In October of 1904, Aaron Brown and eight of his friends founded Phi Delta Epsilon at Cornell University Medical College. At that time, there were many doors closed to Jewish medical students and physicians, doors which would not fully open until after World War II. Read More
