Dear fellow alumni,
In the words of Dean Paul Cunningham, "the sun never sets on the Brody School of Medicine!"We are experiencing a tremendous evolution and I am honored to bring you all the news of many of these developments in this edition of the Alumni Journal.(PDF link of the summer Alumni Journal to be posted soon.)
The American Medical Association awarded $1 million dollar grants to 11 medical schools across the nation, and Brody was selected as one of those 11 schools to lead the "Accelerating Change in Medical Education Initiative" by encouraging innovative curriculum and explore new ways of learning the art of medicine within the complex new realities of our evolving health care system.
The James and Connie Maynard Children's Hospital at Vidant Medical Center opened June 20, bringing a world of opportunity and growth to the department of Pediatrics within Brody.This year, we will add 3 new general pediatricians and 10 pediatric subspecialists bringing to 86 the total number of physician faculty members in the department of Pediatrics. Thirteen of these faculty members completed their medical school and/or residency training here at BSOM.
And in this issue you will meet the newest members of our Alumni Society, the graduating seniors of the class of 2013.This is an outstanding group of professionals that have just joined us, and I encourage you to welcome them as you may begin to work with them across the state and nation in their residencies.
We sincerely appreciate your support and invite you to join us again this year as we continue to serve the people of eastern North Carolina and East Carolina University.
