Ever since, the medical school has grown dramatically in its teaching, research and patient care roles. The legislature set forth a three-fold mission for the ECU School of Medicine: to increase the supply of primary care physicians to serve the state, to improve the health status of citizens in eastern North Carolina, and to enhance the access of minority and disadvantaged students to a medical education. East Carolina University is the education centerpiece of eastern North Carolina and the Brody School of Medicine is one component of the rapidly growing Health Sciences campus that also includes the Schools of Allied Health, Nursing and Dental Medicine. The Brody School of Medicine [http://www.ecu.edu/med/] is affiliated with Vidant Medical Center.
