Biographical / Historical

The modern Asklepiads Pre-Med Society is a student-run organization at the University of Oregon open to all students interested in the medical field. The UO honorary society was founded by pre-medical students in 1929, and they selected the name themselves, and Professor Huestis as their first advisor.

The student council granted a charter to the organization in 1930. Women were not allowed to be members until 1970, when the first female members were initiated.

In October 1935, the group made arrangements with a local doctor (Dr. Hurley) to observe an operation each week. An organized preceptorship program was started in 1973.
