Brody School of Medicine

ECU Brody School of Medicine Bulletin


The Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University has offered a four-year medical education program for over 40 years. Although still a relatively young school, we have succeeded in gaining national recognition for our programs in rural medicine, primary care, robotic and minimally invasive surgery, obesity research, and telemedicine. Our dedicated faculty, staff, and students assure our continued success in the 21st century. Located in the eastern third of North Carolina, Greenville serves as the region’s center for education and health care.

The Brody School of Medicine is located on the west campus of East Carolina University. In addition to the School of Medicine, the medical campus includes the School of Nursing, the School of Allied Health Sciences, the School of Dental Medicine, and Health Sciences Library. Located adjacent to the School of Medicine is Vidant Medical Center, a state-of-the-art 909-bed hospital which houses the East Carolina Heart Institute and serves as the primary teaching site for the school’s inpatient services.

Consistent with its emphasis on family medicine and primary care, the school maintains multiple ambulatory facilities for outpatients. In addition, Centers of Excellence for cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, drug and alcohol abuse, metabolic disorders, and childhood obesity focus on health care problems prevalent in our region. Education of medical and doctoral students continues to be the primary objective of the Brody School of Medicine. The school prides itself on its attention to student needs and collegial interactions with students at all levels. Our relatively small class size facilitates close interaction among faculty, students, and physicians in residency training. A significant portion of our clinical education is carried out in community settings across the state.

The Brody School of Medicine strives for excellence in all its programs. We carefully plan and review the educational experiences we provide our students, and offer them the personal attention and guidance needed for a lifetime of fulfilling practice.
