ECU names senior associate dean for academic affairs at Brody School of Medicine




Monday, May 20, 2019

Dr. Kendall M. Campbell has been named senior associate dean for academic affairs for the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University, effective on May 1, after serving in the interim position since fall 2018.

He will continue to oversee Brody’s offices of admissions, medical and graduate medical education, continuing medical education, simulation and safety education, student affairs, data analysis and strategy, and student development and academic counseling.

“Dr. Campbell has received numerous accolades for his service to the field of medicine,” said Dr. Mark Stacy, dean of Brody and ECU vice chancellor for health sciences. “His experience with the recruitment and retention of underrepresented minority students and faculty in medicine – and with underrepresented patients in the clinical setting – will be integral to ensuring that our medical school continues to deliver on its mission.”

A tenured associate professor in the Department of Family Medicine, Campbell came to ECU in 2016 to serve as Brody’s associate dean for diversity and inclusion, a position which will now be filled by Dr. Cedric M. Bright, Brody’s associate dean for admissions, until a permanent replacement is named.

In his former role as associate dean for diversity and inclusion, Campbell oversaw the creation of Brody RISE, a pipeline program aimed at increasing the supply of primary care physicians to serve the state and enhancing the access of disadvantaged and minority students to a medical education. Under Campbell’s leadership, the Brody RISE pre-college program launched educational outreach to Pitt County and surrounding communities to provide health-care exposure and academic opportunity to middle- and high-school youth interested in science and math.

Campbell previously held faculty appointments at the University of Florida (UF) College of Medicine, where he was assistant dean for minority affairs and medical director at Shands UF Eastside Community Practice, an interprofessional practice for the underserved. He also held a faculty appointment at Florida State University College of Medicine (FSUCOM) where he served as co-founder and co-director of the Center for Underrepresented Minorities in Academic Medicine. He earned his medical degree from the UF College of Medicine.

Campbell is a member of the National Academy of Medicine Roundtable on Health Equity and has completed the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) certificate program.

He will continue to serve as director of the Research Group for Underrepresented Minorities in Academic Medicine at Brody.

“My vision for academic affairs at Brody is geared toward creating physicians whose ambitions are aligned with the school’s mission and who are talented, innovative, resourceful, community-focused and dedicated to becoming engineers of health,” Campbell said.

Bright will now oversee the strategic planning and operations for the Office of Diversity Affairs, working with various stakeholders to address culture and climate concerns at Brody and ensuring the school meets diversity-related accreditation requirements.
