ECU's Brody School of Medicine Celebrated as National Leader in Family Medicine

No other medical school in North Carolina - and only one other in the nation - has produced a higher percentage of family physicians in the last decade than the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University, according to officials from two prestigious organizations.

Officials from the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) and the North Carolina Academy of Family Physicians (NCAFP) announced and celebrated this achievement during a visit to Brody on Thursday.

"Brody has a wonderful track record of not only recruiting young people who are interested in practicing medicine, especially in underserved and rural areas, but also leading the nation in the percentage of ECU graduates who are actually going to go into primary care," said Dr. Gary L. LeRoy, president-elect of the AAFP.

Over the last 10 years, however, 18.8 percent of Brody graduates entered family medicine residency programs accredited by the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). AAFP officials said only one other allopathic medical school in the U.S. - the University of North Dakota, at 18.9 percent - had a higher percentage during that time.
