Welcome to the Department of Family Medicine at the Brody School of Medicine, East Carolina University. Our faculty and staff are committed to the highest standards of teaching and patient care.
East Carolina University continues to lead the state in the percentage of medical graduates training in or practicing primary care five years after completing school, according to a report presented this month to the state university system.
Of the 65 students who graduated from the Brody School of Medicine in 2010 who were practicing medicine or in residency or fellowship training in 2015, 36 - or 55 percent - were in a primary care field, according to the report compiled by the N.C. Area Health Education Centers and the Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The report defines primary care as family medicine, general internal medicine, pediatrics, OB/GYN and internal medicine-pediatrics.
