BSOM leading the state in producing NC Physicians

A recent article in the Triangle Business Journal noted that the Brody School of Medicine, part of the Division of Health Sciences at ECU, leads the state in producing physicians who remain in NC to practice.  Unlike graduates of the other three medical schools in the state, over half of Brody’s 2006 graduates are now in practice across NC.  53% of those 2006 graduates matched in primary care specialties (67% if OB/GYN is included).

In keeping with its legislatively-mandated mission, the BSOM has also repeatedly been cited over the past few years for being the top school in the nation for producing family physicians.  Brody is also in the top 10% of all US medical schools for training physicians who go on to practice in rural and underserved areas.
