Welcome to ETSU and the Quillen College of Medicine! We are a Veteran Friendly Campus and the College of Medicine gratefully welcomes the application of our veteran "heroes" and will consider it an honor to receive it. In my days in uniform, a long time ago in a land far away, there was a saying that still lives with me today and I think of it often. It was a simple phrase but very true and powerful, "For those who fought for it, life has a flavor the protected will never know." It's true. There are a number of us at Quillen who know the true meaning of this saying and can to some extent identify personally with some of the "miles in your rear view mirror". As you consider an application to Quillen, read on and carefully evaluate your chances for admission here and how you think you would fit at this unique school.
We honor, appreciate and value your service to our great nation and the experience, leadership and maturity you may bring to our student body. Please note that our affinity for veterans will not override a non competitive application and it can not substitute for in-state status (important at this state supported school). I do not intend to solicit an application from anyone nor do I wish to mislead anyone into thinking that the fact that you have served our country will assure you a class position here. What I do wish you to understand is that we are appreciative and cognizant of the things that your service has added to you as a person. Read our words carefully before applying and if you have any questions please feel free to contact us or any of our enrolled veteran students.
We thank you for your service to our country and for your interest in Quillen. Let us know how we may serve you.
