Specific Specialty Interest Groups
Medical students at Quillen College of Medicine organize and maintain a number of specialty interest groups to more fully expose their peers to specific areas in medicine. These school-sponsored groups offer lectures, workshops, clinical experiences and mentoring commonly in a “lunch and learn” format. Through participation in the groups, students can become more knowledgeable about a particular specialty to assist in their career decisions.
