Veterans Welcome

Quillen College of Medicine



In honor and recognition of those who are or have honorably served America through active military service, the Quillen College of Medicine is proud to announce the waiver of all supplementary application fees for these folks. We are unable to waive the preliminary application fee through the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS) but will waive the supplemental fee for those who progress in the selection process. We are a veteran friendly institution, located on the grounds of a beautiful Veterans Affairs hospital at Mountain Home, Tennessee and we are pleased to be able to further honor our service women and men through this small token of appreciation. Our program "Vets Welcome" shows our recognition and appreciation of our service people.

We are proud of, and  honor, those who have attended Quillen and gone on to serve in all branches of service. We are proud of our record of training those for further service in the military through the Health Professions Scholarship Program and strongly recommend that our applicants and students explore this program is a method or financing the medical education and graduating from medical school debt free.

This fee waiver is effective immediately and is available on request to those who have honorably served (or are currently serving) in the US Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard or their reserve or National Guard components. Military service must be documented in the original AMCAS application or through the submission fo a DD214 or other proof of military service.

To all our "comrades in arms", please accept this small token in appreciation for your service. Thank you.
