I’m a UNCC alum (2009) and at ECU for med school now and our opportunities to rotate through hospitals outside of ECU’s hospital are limited during our third year. Most hospitals in NC that are teaching hospitals have some statement like “available to UNC students only during 3rd year”. It’s a little frustrating that they have so much pull over the major hospital systems in Asheville, Charlotte Wilmington.
Thats fine though, I’m happy being the “UNCC kid” outperforming all the UNC alumni in class ::)[/quote]
UNC is a monopoly. The lack of a REAL medical school in this city not only hurts UNC Charlotte but the entire region around the city, medically and financially.[/quote]
I think UNCC will eventually get a med school. I think it’ll take some time and a push from alumni in high places to get it done though.[/quote]
I’m not so sure of that:
My school sort of evolved from UNC. Back in the 70’s the school here in Greenville was just a branch of Chapel Hill. 1st and 2nd years did the book part here and then moved to Chapel Hill in the clinical years. Eventually ECU’s school of medicine branched off on its own in the late 70’s/early 80’s.
I don’t mind ECU that much, but I’ve always thought about how awesome it’d be to be doing this back in the Charlotte area.
