 Second Look Weekend

Congratulations on your acceptance to the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University! On behalf of the students, faculty, and staff of the Brody School of Medicine, it is our pleasure to invite you to our Second Look Weekend, held April 13th to April 14th.

Second Look Weekend is held each year to provide accepted students the chance to meet their future classmates, current students, and faculty as well as explore the state-of-the-art facilities of the Health Sciences Campus and orient themselves to the Greenville Community.

For those deciding between multiple schools, Second Look is your chance to learn more about the exciting and incredible opportunities at Brody that you may not have seen or heard about during your interview visit.

If you've already decided that Brody is the right place for you, come join us and have some fun, meet your future classmates, check out some housing options, and get to know your way around Greenville!

Weekend Overview

The Second Look event begins with check-in at 9:00 am on Friday, April 13th with a light breakfast hosted by the M1 and M2 students. After having an opportunity to meet and mingle with their potential future classmates and current Brody medical students, participants will get a look at the medical school curriculum through the unique experience of "Mini Med School."

"Mini Med School" is a series of short, interactive class sessions designed to introduce the prospective student to members of the basic sciences faculty, while also giving them a chance to experience our congenial and supportive educational atmosphere.

After you've seen what a day of class is like as a Brody medical student, we'll head to Treybrooke Apartments for a cookout. You will have the opportunity afterwards to explore Greenville, investigate the various housing options, go to different campus events, or relax before the evening activities.

At 6 pm on Friday, a welcome dinner for all attendees and guests will be held in the Brody Medical Sciences Building. After dinner, all Second Look participants are invited to Pitt Street Brewery for a dessert social with current M1-M4 students.

On Saturday, participants will have breakfast with Brody faculty and clinicians at the new, state-of-the-art Family Medicine Center  . Throughout the day on Saturday, potential matriculants will hear from Brody clinicians, faculty members, administrators, and students about the highlights of attending Brody, such as:

- Small class sizes

- Community-based preceptorships and volunteer opportunities

- A steadfast commitment to diversity and opportunities for groups underrepresented
     in medicine

- A longstanding history of producing personable, dedicated, clinically excellent
    physicians to serve the people of our state

- The new curriculum, designed to allow students even more time on clinical rotations
     in their 3rd and 4th years

Groups of medical students will host breakout sessions about first year summer experiences, diversity, as well as a session highlighting the framework of our distinction tract learning programs. A student panel will provide a unique perspective on student life and allow participants to ask questions that only medical students can answer. Following the panel there will be an organization fair where representatives from different campus groups will be on hand to offer valuable information about their respective organizations. Second Look weekend activities will conclude at 4 pm on Saturday, April 14th.
