      You do understand that many of those same docs that see you in the Triangle might come from ECU also. And 85 percent of the students in ECU med school went ot undergrad at UNC, Duke, Vandy, and Wake Forest. I am pretty sure you never went to school. Also why would you be commenting on a story from Greenville when you live in Raleigh if you think everything is so bad here? You obviously still follow things around this terrible place....get a life. I hope an ECU doc would not treat you also if that is you attitude. I hope you are never in a situation where you need one.

    Also a buddy of mine in my college days I tailgate with before football games mentioned that ECU has the # 3 construction management program in the United States only behind Texas A&M and BYU.

    The Accounting Program about 5-7 years ago was ranked 4th in the southeast and 28th in the nation as well. I also heard the finance program was one of the top 50 programs recently. Also the music program is phenominal. ECU getting more progress done is a great thing here for Eastern North Carolina.

    ECU med school saved my life and my moms. Great med school and doctors. The hospital here in Myrtle Beach has partnered with ECU for robotic surgery.

    @Carl, you are correct. When the medical school was established (1964), the primary care in eastern NC was the second worst in the nation when comparing all counties, parishes, and reservations (military and Native American). There has been great improvement for eastern NC with the ECU medical school. There is much more to be accomplished so the work that has begun must continue.

    i saw on tv that they was a critical shortage of primanry care drs in eastern n.c. because of long hours and lower pay. i was under the impression that when ECU school of medicine was build it was they wish to recruit more local talent who was stay here and be primary care drs.?

    It was out of the Top 150. Duke was 57 and Stanford 63. Granted this is primary care but that is ECU's main focus. Great job BSOM! Now lets hear from smart man Dave who willingly paid for his "bad" education. He will turn this story into a of hate against ECU. Whne the truth is he could not even come close to getting in any medical school in the counrty. Only a smart guy would pay for something he thinks is bad or inferior. Pathetic...

    To all you ECU haters, all the ones just biting at the bit to say bad things about ECU, well here you go. Yes, now please tell me how ECU is a EZU and a bunch of drunks. The Education and Nursing programs are also nationally ranked.

      I agree! We have some great programs. Unfortunatly people will only look a a ranking when it makes ECU look bad and they will ignore when the programs are nationally ranked for excellence.

      It's not just these programs and nursing and education that are nationally ranked. The business school is also. There are quite a few programs here that are nationally ranked. One would know if they crawled out of that hole they are in.

      Also the Education program is one of the best in the State and surrounding areas. ECU teachers typically are hired before any other college from NC.
