QCOM Students Enjoying Campus


Why choose Quillen?

In my business there are very few questions to which I can offer a universal or blanket answer.  This is one of the very few for which there is one.  The answer to this question is the same to anyone, from anywhere, who asks.  The answer is plain and simple.  There is only one reason that any applicant should choose Quillen for their medical education:  Because, after extensive thought and exploration, the person has concluded that Quillen is the very best place for them to get their medical education! 

Quillen is unique in many ways.  Every school can accurately make that same claim.  Some of the assets that make Quillen most attractive to some are the small class size, the collegiality, camaraderie and team work between students faculty and staff, the location in the beautiful foothills of the Smokies, the smaller town environment, the individual attention available from faculty and staff, the smaller but modern and well equipped hospitals, the excellence of the training and the “Quillen experience” or the safety and serenity of the environment.  The PRIDE we take in our students and graduates.  Any or all of these things might make Quillen “the best school for you” or maybe not.

I invite and encourage all prospective students to visit our campus, talk with our students and graduates, look around the Tri-Cities and just see how the school feels to you.  Ask lots of questions.  Find out the answers to the questions that are important to you — and don’t let anybody tell you what is important.  Four years after matriculation at any school, most all students are awarded two new initials after their name (M.D.) and a new first name that goes with them for the rest of their life (Doctor).  All schools teach Anatomy, Biochemistry, Surgery and Pediatrics — most use many of the same text books.  Thus it seems to follow that you will cover much of the same information wherever you choose.  The differences come not in what you get, but in how you get it, who you get it from and who you get it with.  You need to be comfortable in your medical education environment---it makes a huge difference.  Find out for yourself!

Every accredited medical school in America is a good school.  We are all the same and we are all different.  Come see what the differences are at Quillen and decide for yourself if this just might be the best school for you.  Choose wisely.  Call on us if we can help.  We are happy to assist in any way possible.

Medical Student Mario Soto

Fourth year medical student Major Mario Soto has been the recipient of a generous scholarship through the Tillman Military Scholars Program over his four years at ETSU Quillen College of Medicine. Every year in late April the foundation holds a run in Tempe, AZ through the campus of Arizona State University to commemorate the day Pat Tillman lost his life in Afghanistan serving with the 75th Ranger Regiment. Symbolic of the #42 he wore as an ASU Sun Devil, Pat's Run is 4.2 miles long, ending on the 42-yeard line of Frank Kush Field inside Sun Devil Stadium.

Mario has been selected as one of the featured scholars for the event. The donations from the race directly support the Tillman Military Scholars program, which provides scholarships to U.S. military veterans and spouses who reflect Pat's values, strength of character, and commitment to service. This is the 10th Anniversary Run, and Mario will be traveling out to Arizona for the race on April 26th, and hopes to show support for the foundation by raising money for this great cause.

Mario set up a fundraising page at http://www.crowdrise.com/marios2014patsrunfundraiser and hopes to enlist the support of the #QuillenFamily. Any contributions will help greatly.
