Why Quillen 
I wanted a school that had a small class class size, commitment to improving their surrounding community, and emphasis on developing well-rounded physicians.  Being an out-of-state applicant, I was aware of Quillen only because my brother attended UT-Knoxville and my wife is from North Carolina. However, as I researched QCOM, I saw how it offered a quality education and produced graduates who made an immediate impact wherever they went.  Being a Marine Corps veteran, I was impressed by ETSU's commitment to offering veterans opportunities as well as the extremely beneficial partnership with the Mountain Home VA hospital.  All of these factors influenced my decision to apply to Quillen.

 Being a Quillen Student
The Quillen family is strong.  Not only do you establish a tight relationship with your classmates, but the intimate atmosphere enables the student to establish meaningful rapport with professors, clinicians, and support staff from across the healthcare spectrum.  The proximity of the nursing, physical therapy, public health, and pharmacy school helps me understand my role in the broader health care system.  Being a student here is engaging, exciting, and challenging.

Juggling School and Family
I've made significant adjustments to my study habits and time management skills as a result of being a husband, father, and medical student.  However, the Quillen family is inclusive and respects the student's time off.  In addition, the Johnson City area has a great support structure for families, ranging from parks to organizations to cultural events.  Juggling school and family has been a challenge but I won't have it any other way. 

Life Outside the Classroom
QCOM, ETSU, and the Johnson City area provide many conduits for activities outside the classroom. From charity work to intramurals, there are plenty of opportunities to broaden yourself personally. For me, going to Catholic Church, enjoying Buffalo Mountain, and eating out are great ways to achieve balance.  

Words of Wisdom
Stay motivated. Everything is within reach if you are focused and cultivate good daily habits.
