We lead through excellence, collaboration and innovation.
East Tennessee State University’s Quillen College of Medicine serves along with the College of Nursing, College of Clinical and Rehabilitative Health Sciences, Gatton College of Pharmacy, and College of Public Health as the region's health sciences center. In fact only 2 universities in America can boast of the same mix of health care programs on the same campus.
In just three decades, the College has developed into one of the nation’s leading schools for rural and primary care medicine, an honor consistently recognized by U.S. News & World Report.
Founded in 1974 on a mission to train primary care physicians and to increase the number of doctors in rural communities, the Quillen College of Medicine, with more than 1,500 graduates, has remained true to its original mission. Thirty-five years later, Fitzhugh Mullan published his innovative “social mission” research in the Annals of Internal Medicine, demonstrating that Quillen is ranked first in the nation for primary care graduates.
