We introduce you to our program with obvious, yet humble pride. 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 at ECU, 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 allows our program to not only fulfill the needs of the medical residents but the community as a whole.
Our Program has a condensed yet significant history for over 30 years. We serve the greater Greenville area of Pitt county as well as the 29 surrounding counties. This referral base is approximately 1.4 million people and includes the majority of eastern North Carolina.
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 understand the importance of feedback and maintain a receptive atmosphere that is amenable to our community’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 hours. 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 and 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.
