ECU/PCC Establish an East Coast Pharmaceutical Force

by Madeleine Tingen

According to the Pitt County Development Commission, East Carolina University (ECU) and Pitt Community College (PCC) will partner to establish the Biopharmaceutical Work Force Development and Manufacturing Center of Excellence. With funds provided by the Golden LEAF Foundation, this effort will create the East Coast’s finest training center for biomanufacturing and pharmaceuticals.  Additional support from the North Carolina Community College System’s NCWorks Customized Training and BioNetwork will enhance the planned facilities and programs.

Unanimously voting to provide the largest such grant this year, the Golden LEAF Board of Directors will provide $1,750,000—to ECU ($1,100,000) and PCC ($650,000).  The creation of the Biopharmaceutical Work Force Development and Manufacturing Center of Excellence is a model for economic and work force development collaboration.  PCC, ECU, the NC Community College BioNetwork, and Pitt County are partnering to develop an educational and training infrastructure for a 21st century pharmaceutical services workforce to meet the labor and expertise needs of such companies as Patheon, a leading provider of drug substance and drug product services for the global biopharmaceutical industry.

The Golden LEAF Board of Directors had earlier reserved funding for this purpose as part of North Carolina’s efforts to recruit Patheon to expand in Greenville, NC. Governor Pat McCrory announced this expansion of an estimated 488 jobs in October of 2014. Golden LEAF recognizes the economic and workforce development opportunity at hand and shares the vision of a bright pharmaceutical services future for the region, where over 8,000 people are already directly employed in pharmaceutical manufacturing.  Companies such as RTI, the manufacturer of a sterile biomedical device, are also growing in Pitt County.

ECU Offers Online Classes in Virtual 3D World, Second Life

by Anthony Litz

March 16, 2009, marks the long awaited day when thousands of medical residents nationwide receive the news informing them of their residency destination. Each intern will learn the name and location of their teaching hospital—hoping one of their top choices will be their selected match.  To the medical community, this day represents “Match Day” and is organized by the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).

The National Resident Matching Program, a private, not-for-profit organization, provides a method for matching applicants for residency positions in the United States with residency programs at various teaching hospitals.  Applicants and hospitals rank each other in order of preference, and a computer matches them based upon those rankings.

According to the NRMP, the number of available residency positions this year was the highest in match history.  This year, 28,737 applicants vied for one of the 22,240  first-year residency positions available--the most ever.  Of those, 135,106  were U.S. medical school seniors.  Other applicants included previous graduates of U.S. medical schools, U.S. citizen and non-U.S. citizen international medical graduates, and osteopathic doctors.  

Whether temporary or long-term, the residents will relocate to the cities of their assigned teaching hospitals.  Several of these residents will receive a match that will bring them to Greenville, NC and Pitt County Memorial Hospital – University Health Systems of Eastern North Carolina, working in conjunction with the Brody School of Medicine.  For over 18 years, The Pistol Tingen Real Estate Team has provided incoming medical residents with their relocation requirements—assisting them in an efficient, seamless transition from their present location to Greenville, NC.  To learn more about our relocation services, please contact The Pistol Tingen Team at (252) 321-6161.

ECU Recognized For Community Achievements

by Pistol Tingen

East Carolina University and seven other UNC system schools have been recognized nationally for community outreach and engagement achievements.

ECU is one of only 195 institutions in the country to be recognized for community engagement by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Community engagement is a collaboration between a university and its communities in mutually beneficial partnerships that respond to community needs by sharing skills, knowledge and resources.

The foundation, which makes assessments of colleges and universities, has announced that 119 campuses received the engaged distinction for 2008, joining 76 that were identified in 2006.

The other University of North Carolina campuses include Appalachian State University, North Carolina Central University, UNC-Charlotte, UNC-Greensboro, UNC-Wilmington, UNC-Pembroke and Western Carolina University. Those campuses join North Carolina State University and UNC-Chapel Hill that received the designation in 2006.

With the announcement, the proportion of North Carolina's public universities deemed by the Carnegie Foundation to be “community engaged” far exceeds that of peer state systems across the country including California, Texas and Wisconsin, according to the UNC system administration.

“Receiving this classification confirms what we at ECU already know — that the commitment and practice of engagement are woven throughout our teaching, research, service and outreach enterprises,” said ECU Chancellor Steve Ballard. “This is our history and a core strength as we pursue our mission to serve as a national model for public service and regional transformation.”

East Carolina University School of Dentistry will be one of the first public dental schools in the United States established in the past 40 years with an emphasis on serving the oral health care needs of rural America by focusing the curriculum on the education of general dentists to provide dental care and health policy leadership in North Carolina communities that have limited health resources and few other dentists, particularly specialists. 

Dental schools in other states operate admirable community education programs and provide valuable service learning opportunities for their students. However, in most dental schools, these community programs are often elective experiences or relatively brief 2-4 week rotations designed to supplement the core in-school clinical training.  A recent study found that the typical senior student in U.S. dental schools receives an average of only 11 days of patient care experience in community settings.  No other dental school emphasizes the unique culture and challenges of health services delivery and medical/dental disease patterns in small town America.

ECUSOD is also unique in that the primary focus of student recruitment will be individuals from rural and underserved areas who desire to return to this environment as health care providers. The school will also take the unique approach of preparing graduates to fulfill leadership roles in these communities and will provide students with curricular experiences designed to help them succeed as general dentists and as small business operators in the often economically challenging environment of rural counties.
ECUSOD will educate graduates to function autonomously as the sole dentist within a region and thus will emphasize the diagnostic role of the general dentist since timely referral to dental specialists is often not feasible in the rural practice environment. ECUSOD students will enter school with the expectation that substantial components of the curriculum will be implemented outside the confines of the core campus and with the expectation that their capstone learning experience will be an extended immersion in a dental clinic located in a rural community away from the ECU campus.

With a projected opening date of fall 2011, ECUSOD will provide a unique dental education experience with emphasis on preparing graduates to fulfill an expanded primary care role that requires well developed assessment skills and capacity to provide a broad array of dental care services without support from dental specialists such as endodontists, oral surgeons and pediatric dentists who are often not available in rural North Carolina.

World Renowned Surgical Pioneer Launches ECU Lecture Series

by Pistol Tingen

 

September 25, Dr. W. Randolph Chitwood, Jr. delivered the inaugural lecture in the Voyages of Discovery Lecture Series offered by the Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences at East Carolina University located in Pitt County, Greenville, NC.  Speaking on the history of heart surgery at East Carolina University, Dr. Chitwood addressed an audience of more than 200 people.

Dr. Chitwood is the senior associate vice chancellor for health sciences at the Brody School of Medicine, director of the East Carolina Heart Institute and a cardiovascular surgery professor at the medical school.  Dr. Chitwood described innovations that began with the turn of the 20th century as well as medical innovations that continue today—including his development of the da Vinci Surgical System currently used to help patients at the Brody School of Medicine. Chitwood uses the system he developed and conducts minimally invasive surgery remotely with robotic arms.

Surgeons from around the world travel to Greenville, NC to study and learn the da Vinci Surgical System techniques developed by Dr. Chitwood.    Chitwood’s recognition that robotic technology could provide surgeons with the visibility and freedom of movement required for performing cardiac surgery resulted in his development of the da Vinci System.

The Brody School of Medicine is the first U.S. institution to perform robotic-assisted mitral valve surgery.  The Cardiovascular Center at Pitt County Memorial Hospital currently performs 1,200 cardiac surgical, 3,000 interventional, and 5,000 catheter-based procedures every year according to Dr. Chitwood. He described the surgery as being very much like virtual reality. “You are doing the operation as if it is a hand motion, but there are not the mistakes that hands can make,” he said. 

The University Health Systems (UHS) 2008 Quarterly Report, Dr. Chitwood leads the field in heart surgery using the robot, and he recently performed his 400th robot-assited mitral valve replacement.

Dr. Chitwood is a member of 25 professional societies, and is the President of The Society of Thoracic Surgeons. The community of Greenville, NC is proud and fortunate to claim the world-renowned surgical pioneer as one of our esteemed residents..
