Greetings! Thank you for visiting the Office of the Dean. At Quillen College of Medicine, we take pride in our mission to educate outstanding physicians who will make a positive impact on health care in rural and underserved communities both here within the Appalachian Highlands and around the world. I encourage you to explore this site to learn more about our medical school, including our mission and goals, our structure, and our rich history that has been deeply rooted in the Mountain Home VA Campus of East Tennessee since the signing of the Teague-Cranston Act by President Nixon in 1972. If you have any questions, please contact my office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.I look forward to talking with you soon.
