Student Organizations

Medical Student Council (MSC)
The Medical Student Council includes the president and three other representatives from each class. The MSC represents the educational, political and social interests of medical students to the faculty and administration. Standing committees include academic affairs, student affairs, student health, student information and minority affairs. Any enrolled medical student may volunteer for committee membership.

Professional Organizations

American Medical Association Medical Student Section (AMA-MSS)
The ECU Student Chapter of the North Carolina Medical Society and the American Medical Association promote student participation in the professional organizations. Since 1979 the Brody School of Medicine has had representation at state and national meetings by student members. Students continue to be active in the Pitt County Medical Society, the North Carolina Medical Society, and at the national level of the American Medical Association.

American Medical Student Association (AMSA)
The ECU Chapter of the American Medical Student Association provides students with current information on many issues concerning medicine. The organization sponsors local service projects and is also active on the national level.

American Medical Women's Association (AMWA)
The ECU Chapter of the American Medical Women's Association promotes the cause of women in medicine and provides a forum for discussion of issues of special interest to professional women. The chapter offers members opportunities to exchange ideas and concerns with women in medicine from the ECU and the Greenville community as well as nationally.

Association of Women's Surgeons (AWS)

Christian Medical and Dental Association (CMDA)
In 1980 a group of medical students, physicians and nurses organized the Christian Medical/Dental Society to explore the application of the principles of Christianity to medicine and medical education, to provide fellowship in the health care field and to serve as an evangelistic tool within the medical center and community.

Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA)
In 2009, a consortium of regional leaders from the National Network of Latin American Medical Students (NNLAMS) decided to establish what is now known as the Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA).  The Latino Medical Student Association unites and empowers medical students through service, mentorship, and education to support the health of the Latino community.  Our chapter at the Brody School of Medicine has set out to advocate for the rights of Latinos in healthcare, promote the recruitment and retention of Latino/a medical students, and engage the Latino community in learning about ways to achieve and maintain optimal health.

Student National Medical Association (SNMA)
The Student National Medical Association was founded in 1964 as a result of a need to produce an increasing number of physicians to serve minority and indigent communities. Organized in 1979, the ECU Chapter of SNMA emphasizes leadership development, social awareness, service to humanity and excellence as physicians. The chapter's projects include an annual scholarship award to a deserving member of the organization.
