Welcome from President Claudia H. Daly, MD, Class of 2001
It's a busy time of changes here at the Brody School of Medicine, and my new role as the President of the BSOM Alumni society is just one piece. I first want to sincerely thank David Collier and Bill Burke for their years of service to keep the alumni layers of communication open and inviting. Secondly, I am excited to have the honor of promoting and sharing the news and strengths about all of you as Brody graduates and, just as importantly, the amazing students who now walk our BSOM halls.
As a graduate of ECU in 1984, BSOM in 2001, and the ECU Family Medicine Residency Program in 2003, my passion for our school and Eastern North Carolina is deep. I now serve on the faculty of the Department of Emergency Medicine. Staying in Greenville and working for ECU has been wonderful for me professionally and personally. I have the pleasure of working with Brody students and ECU residents each year and love the way they represent Brody. Our students are gifted, inquisitive, compassionate, and obviously, leaders.
To adapt to the changing needs of our state, our school is facing challenges but moving forward with enthusiasm. We will soon announce the selection of a new Dean and plan to increase our class size to 120 students. In pursuit of our mission, we will use innovation and new technology to teach our students in a larger space. We are connecting our students to resources made possible by our amazing alumni. Despite changes, we continue to produce doctors committed to serving the needs of North Carolina, as has been our mission since the school’s inception.
With these immense changes we want to know, engage and learn how the BSOM family might better serve you. Together with the Medical and Health Sciences Foundation, we encourage you to share your time, talent and treasure with our students as they prepare to join your communities and various specialties. Please let us know how we might better connect with you as we work to keep you updated on our forward progress and future growth!
