Exciting Day For ECU Med Students

It was a very exciting day Friday for a group of medical students in the east as they found out where they'll spend the next few years as doctors-in-training.

Graduating East Carolina University med students found out which residency programs they were matched with, and were cheered on by their friends and family.

Before they can provide direct patient care, U.S. medical school graduates normally complete a three to seven year residency in a recognized medical specialty.

Med students across the country also found out which residency program they were matched with as part of the national match day.

    Those of you wanting more details, there are many reason's those details are hard to come by. A relative was one who graduated yesterday & it isn't announced where people go. The person can tell others where they are going if they choose, but it's not a public announcement for each spot. Additionally, for those asking about primary care, ECU only has 12 spots a year for that. So they fill 12 each year. I don't know if Brody releases the info on how many come from their school, so I won't say how many came from there.

    Now if they will just remember to be humble and develop some bedside manners like a special few.

    Yet again WITN provides absolutely no details. I would actually like to know where people went. Not by name or anything but numbers by school. The ECU school of medicine was established to increase access to primary care physicians in ENC. Is it still accomplishing this? Seriously WITN, can we get some actual reporting? Maybe you could just have a page of headlines and forget about linking it to anything, it's not like you provide any more information.

    Leo Jenkins, PhD would be proud. The school should be named Leo Jenkins School of Medcine.
