Welcome from President Claudia H. Daly, MD, Class of 2001
It’s a fabulous year already here at the Brody School of Medicine with our new students arriving, the integration of ECU Physicians with Vidant Medical Group, and the arrival of our new dean, Mark Stacy. Not only do we see the excitement on the M1’s faces as they challenge themselves in those early basic science classes, we all are anticipating great things ahead under the direction of Dr. Stacy who officially joined us September 1. We all are happy to have him join us in our Brody mission to bring incredible doctors to the citizens of North Carolina.
We welcomed our new Class of 2021 in early August with our White Coat Ceremony, preceded by the Medical & Health Sciences Foundation sponsored family breakfast. Both the breakfast and ceremony were standing room only as students, families, faculty, and friends of Brody listened to our speakers share important medical school history and good wishes with all. The class picture with all those sponsored White Coats looks amazing! I thank all of you who were able to help provide these coats. All of our students are now back in classes or in clinical rotations but between their commitments those in the study lounge have already started to interact with the undergraduates who have come to interview for a spot in the Class of 2022.
With these immense changes we want to know, engage and learn how the BSOM family might better serve you. Together with the Medical and Health Sciences Foundation, we encourage you to share your time, talent and treasure with our students as they prepare to join your communities and various specialties. Please let us know how we might better connect with you as we work to keep you updated on our forward progress and future growth!Claudia Daly, M.D
