Partners in Medicine

The College of Medicine has made scholarships a fund-raising priority. Upon graduation, our students have amassed an average debt of $96,000. Because the majority of our physicians are committed to providing primary care in underserved areas, most choose a specialty and practice location that are not traditionally lucrative.

Alumni, faculty, staff and friends are providing scholarship funds to help medical students concentrate on academic and clinical endeavors while enrolled.  Gift to the Partners in Medicine Scholarship Endowment help reduce the tuition burden on students, and enable the College of Medicine to fulfill its mission of providing more physicians to small, rural communities.

Special thanks go to our Partners in Medicine listed below. For information on becoming a Partner in Medicine / making a gift to the College of Medicine, please contact Carol Sloan, Director of Development and Alumni Relations at Quillen College of Medicine Office of Institutional Advancement, (423) 439-6142 or email
