Doctors’ Day

Honoring ECU Physicians – Doctors’ Day March 30, 2022

March 30 is National Doctors’ Day, a day to honor physicians, their service and their contributions to society. Now more than ever, it is imperative to recognize physicians who are serving our community and university during this challenging time. Many of these talented doctors are working on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic while also teaching and mentoring the next generation of medical professionals.

Is there a Brody School of Medicine or ECU Physician who has made an impact on your life or career? Here is your chance to tell a beloved doctor, resident or physician educator what they mean to you.

Send us a message to let us know why this doctor is so special—and consider making a gift to the Brody School of Medicine in his or her honor. We’ll send a special note to the physician(s) you are choosing to honor informing them of your recognition. This note can be personalized or sent anonymously; it is completely up to you!
