ECU/VMC Internal Medicine Residency Program

We welcome you to our program. Our East Carolina University/Vidant Medical Center (ECU/VMC) Internal Medicine Residency Program is an integral part of the ECU- Brody School of Medicine (BSOM) and VMC, both set on the beautiful Health Sciences campus of ECU. We are ideally situated in Greenville, NC, which is close to the beaches of the Outer Banks and just a scenic drive to the mountains of western North Carolina.

The Department of Internal Medicine within the BSOM, a division of Heath Sciences, includes nine subspecialty divisions- individually exhibiting a dedicated group of clinical educators and staff equally committed to patient care and medical education as well as research. Each clinical faculty member at the BSOM makes up the largest medical practice in Eastern, NC recognized as ECU Physicians, which promotes the theme: “Smart Medicine.” The synergism of these several driving forces provides the foundation of our program allowing us to meet the needs of each medical resident but also the community as a whole.

We proudly serve the greater Greenville area of Pitt county as well as the 29 surrounding counties.  Our referral base extends to the majority of eastern North Carolina, which includes approximately 1.4 million people.

The ECU IM Program has a well-established history for over 30 years. Foremost, the residency program is strongly committed to clinical training, resident teaching, and mentorship. We are a friendly, tight-knit group of residents fully integrated with faculty to foster a supportive environment that serves to improve the health of our region. Additionally, we maintain a receptive atmosphere that is amenable to both our community’s and our resident's needs. We passionately believe that a positive work-life makes for a happy home-life, thus our relentless goal is to strike a balance between clinical duties and personal time. Rest assured, you will establish lasting friendships with all of your colleagues within just a short amount of time.

Thank you for your interest in our program, we kindly welcome you. In tribute to East Carolina University’s trademark, “Tomorrow Starts Here,” we invite you to learn more about what makes up our excellent program. Please contact us, or even better, visit us in eastern North Carolina to see for yourself.
