The collection consists primarily of photographic, blueprint, journals, class photos, and other advertising materials used and/or created by the Medical News & Information department of East Carolina University.


Biographical/historical information

Initially established as a two year program, the school admitted its first twenty students in September of 1972, chosen from 300 applicants. In 1975, the General Assembly of North Carolina approved the funds and the school began with three objectives: to increase the supply of primary care physicians to serve the state, to improve health status of citizens in eastern North Carolina, and to enhance the access of minority and disadvantaged students to a medical education. Chancellor Leo Jenkins desired a four-year medical school at East Carolina University and in August of 1977, a charter class of twenty-eight students was admitted to the first four year-program. Since 1977, when the first class of 28 students enrolled in the four-year School of Medicine, the institution has grown dramatically in its teaching, research and patient care roles. This collection contains photos and information on the early struggles to establish the school that eventually, in 1999, was renamed the Brody School of Medicine. Since its inception, East Carolina University has become a pioneer in minimally invasive robotic surgery. On 2000 May 3, Dr. Randolph Chitwood performed the first robotic heart valve surgery in North America at Brody. Today the East Carolina Heart Institute, a state of the art integrated cardiovascular disease center, operates out of the Brody School of Medicine.


Scope and arrangement

The collection consists primarily of photographic, blueprint, journals, class photos, and other advertising materials used and/or created by the Medical News & Information department of East Carolina University.
