Dr. Meghan Scott & Dr. Jonathon Firnhaber
(5/15/15) — The Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University was recognized again this year for the high percentage of its graduates pursuing residency training in family medicine.

The American Academy of Family Physicians Top 10 Award annually honors medical schools that — during a consecutive three-year period — graduated the greatest percentage of students who chose first-year family medicine residency positions.

Brody ranked fourth on this year’s list – one place higher than the school’s 2014 ranking. It is based on an average of 18.5 percent of ECU medical graduates entering family medicine during the last three years. No other North Carolina medical school received the award.
