School Overview

School Info

The Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University provides a complete and challenging medical education designed to prepare physicians for service in the 21st century. The faculty and administration emphasize close personal attention to the needs of individual students, a firm and balanced foundation in scientific knowledge and humanistic patient care skills, and adherence to traditions of service, achievement and high ethical standards.

Curriculum

The medical school curriculum has been carefully developed and is regularly monitored and adjusted to reflect the changes occurring in contemporary medical education and practice. The curriculum provides a logical integration of basic science and clinical science knowledge, including early experience in the patient-care setting through individual preceptorships at physician offices throughout the state. Innovative teaching methods such as small group discussions, computer assisted instruction, and use of standardized patients are employed whenever appropriate during the entire four years, as a complement to the traditional venues of the lecture hall and the laboratory.

Facilities

Supporting the faculty in its mission are the excellent facilities of the medical school and Pitt County Memorial Hospital, the primary affiliated teaching hospital of the school. These modern educational and clinical facilities were carefully designed to meet the needs of students- from the William E. Laupus Health Sciences Library with its individual study areas and well-equipped personal computer center to the comfortable auditoria used for large group discussions and professional conferences. These resources contribute to an educational atmosphere that encourages mature study, intellectual curiosity, and the formal and informal exchange of ideas and knowledge.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
