- The Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University has a legislatively mandated mission: to increase the supply of primary care physicians to serve North Carolina. Only North Carolina applicants are considered for admission to ECU.
- Consistent with this mission, a higher proportion of ECU’s graduates practice in-state compared to other NC medical schools.
- The language in the mission of each medical school is aligned with the relative proportion of graduates who practice in NC.
