Congratulations on your acceptance to the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University! On behalf of the students, faculty and staff of the Brody School of Medicine, it is our pleasure to invite you to our Second Look Weekend, held March 31st to April 1st.
Second Look Weekend is held each year to provide accepted students the chance to meet their future classmates, current students, and faculty, explore the state-of-the-art facilities of the Health Sciences Campus, and orient themselves to the Greenville community.
For those deciding between multiple schools, Second Look is your chance to learn more about the exciting and incredible opportunities at Brody that you may not have seen or heard about during your interview visit.
If you've already decided that Brody is the right place for you, come join us and have some fun, meet your future classmates, check out some housing options, and get to know your way around Greenville!
Second Look begins at 9:00 am on Friday, March 31st with a breakfast hosted by the M1 and M2 students. After having an opportunity to meet and mingle with their potential future classmates and current Brody medical students, participants will get a look at the medical school curriculum through the unique experience of "Mini Med School".
"Mini Med School" is a series of short, interactive class sessions designed to introduce the prospective student to members of the basic sciences faculty, while also giving them a chance to experience our congenial and supportive educational atmosphere.
After you've seen what a day of class is like as a Brody medical student, we'll head to Meridian Park Apartments for a poolside cookout. Bring your swimsuit and Can Jam/Cornhole/Ladder Golf'A-Game'. You will have the opportunity afterwards to explore Greenville, investigate the various housing options, or to relax before the evening activities.
At 6:30 pm on Friday, a welcome dinner for all attendees and guests will be held in the Brody Medical Sciences Building. After dinner, all Second Look participants are invited to Winslows for a dessert social with current M1-M4 students.
On Saturday, join Brody School of Medicine clinicians and teaching faculty for breakfast at the newly opened,state-of-the-art Family Medicine Center . Throughout the day on Saturday, potential matriculants will hear from Brody clinicians, faculty members, administrators, and students about the highlights of attending Brody, such as:
- Small class sizes

- A longstanding history of producing personable, dedicated, clinically excellent
physicians to serve the people of our state

in their 3rd and 4th years
Groups of medical students will host short breakout sessions about first year summer experiences, the proudly unique and diverse student body, as well as our REACH and LINC Scholars programs . Members from the Office of Student Financial Aid will discuss various means to finance your medical education, how to control costs during the next four years, and service-based repayment programs.
During lunch, Dr. Jill Sutton, MD, a Brody alumna and faculty member in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, will share her experiences as a student, clinician, and educator at Brody, as well as how faculty and students are working together to revolutionize medical student education during the 3rd and 4th year clerkships.
Following lunch, a panel of M1-M4 students will provide their unique perspectives on student life and allow participants to ask questions that only medical students can answer.
Following the panel, the group will take a tour of the Health Sciences Campus, including the East Carolina Heart Institute , the newly opened Pediatric Emergency Department, and the soon-to-be finished Student Recreation Center. The tour will end at the beautiful Laupus Library , where representatives from dozens of student organizations will be on hand to share valuable information about their respective groups, as well as a Research Fair showcasing the many opportunities for medical students to conduct research during their four years at Brody.
