Report of Educational Programs Committee as Approved by the North Carolina Board of Higher Education concerning the Request of East Carolina University for a Master of Medical Science Degree (Two-Year Curriculum for the School of Medicine).
North Carolina State Board of Higher Education, Raleigh.
In evaluating the request of East Carolina University to offer a program for the first 2 years of medical education, the Educational Programs Committee of the North Carolina Board of Higher Education had to look at the broader problems of the training of physicians in the State. This report therefore is not only a response to East Carolina University, but also an outline of a broad statewide plan to increase the production of physicians. Essentially the plan calls for building upon the strong base offered by the three existing medical schools, but broadening the base to include work, both at the first-year stage of the medical training and again at the end of the medical training at a number of other centers in the State, including East Carolina University. ECU's specific request for a 2-year program was denied, but it was recommended that the University initiate a program of first-year medical education in cooperation with the School of Medicine of the University of North Carolina.
