I would highly recommend your brother come back to the US before the current re-entry permit expires. How has he maintained his residency in the US? Has he filed taxes? Does he have a home or other residence? Does he have other relatives in the US--i.e. wife and children? Having a re-entry permit is not enough to keep the GC. The GC is for living in the US. You can study over seas just like any student can studying in one place and maintain their residence in another, bur it is not easy to do. I would recommend he return to the US and find a way to finish his studys while visiting the US during breaks.

My father is supporting his expense. Our father is U.S citizen. He is unmarried but his parents siblings all in U.S. He also filed tax last year. He wants to finish his medical degree overseas. He will come back before feburary but wants to apply again for reentry permit. We r confused can he do that?

He can apply again, but if he's planning another prolonged stay outside of the US then it's possible he may risk his green card by doing so.

I would say that at two years he is fast approaching the point where CBP are going to take a closer look at him and perhaps issue him with a Notice To Appear in immigration court where they would ask a judge to revoke his green card.
