Why Quillen

Small classes, personable faculty, one of the top rural health programs in the country, excellent curriculum, incredible area of the country.

Being a Quillen Student

Love going to school here, no need to say more.

Living in Northeast Tennessee

The area has so many incredible recreational opportunities. I regularly climb or mountain bike after class. Many good, down to earth folks in this kind of area. Personally, I enjoy the farmer's markets and the small town feel of where my wife and I live in Jonesborough, TN, 15 minutes from school.

Prior Life

US Army Ranger. Infantry Officer out of Fort Bragg, NC for a while. Going back into the Army after school as a physician.

Words of Wisdom

School is what you make of it. Enjoy yourself, 4 years is not an insignificant portion of your life. Set goals for yourself every day. Once you have reached your goal for the day, stop and do something you enjoy.
