Organizational Unit Overview:
Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University is a 40-year-old medical school with a strong primary care orientation. The school established a three-fold to serve as a guiding framework for our overall educational efforts:

  • To increase the supply of primary care physicians serving the state
  • To improve the health and well-being of the region
  • To train physicians who will meet the health care needs of the state
The Department of Family Medicine at ECU, Brody School of Medicine, is a nationally recognized leader in Family Medicine education. The Family Medicine Department, located in a 120,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility, provides a wide variety of comprehensive primary care services for all age groups to include: procedural skills, obstetrical care, nutrition services, counseling and psychological support in an integrated care model. The mission of the Geriatrics Division is to prepare learners at all levels of professional care for the challenges of caring for older patients.

We do this by:
1. Dedicated medical student teaching and patient care time in the required 3rd year Family Medicine clerkship.
2. Train Family Medicine residents alongside nurse practitioner and physician assistant students in a collaborative model during their required month-long Geriatric rotation in their first year of residency training.
3. Train Geriatric Fellows in the special patient care skills and challenges that are part of a career in caring for older patients.

We use many community sites to accomplish this mission:
1. Monk Geriatric Center
2. On-site patient care in Memory, Assisted Living, and Skilled Units at a local Continuing Care Retirement Community.
3. Multidisciplinary consultation clinics for memory disorders, falls and medication management alongside faculty in physical therapy, pharmacy and psychology.
4. Work closely with our Geriatric Psychiatry colleagues and our Alzheimer's Support Group in the Monk Geriatric Center to provide caring, competent care to patients with these disorders.

Our faculty work closely with Family Medicine residents in the care and supervision of their older patients. We also provide consultation services to patients in the community and hospital inpatient services.
