Phi Beta Pi
Phi Beta Pi (ΦΒΠ) medical fraternity is a professional fraternity founded March 10, 1891, at the West Pennsylvania Medical College (now a department of the University of Pittsburgh) as an anti-fraternity society. It was originally known as Pi Beta Phi but changed its name because of an existing sorority with the same name.
