ETSU's Quillen College of Medicine

Has landed on the top 10 list of a national magazine that named Johnson City one of the best cities in the United States to attend medical school.

For its January/February issue, PreMedLife researched and compiled the “Top 10 Cities for Medical School.” Published in New York City for pre-medical students, PreMedLife not only ranked Johnson City among its top 10 but also christened it to be the magazine’s “editor’s choice.”

The PreMedLife story based its rankings on cities that offer medical students the best overall experience outside the classroom. Students at the Quillen College of Medicine, the magazine wrote, benefit from a low cost of living, affordable housing, a nice climate, free arts and music festivals and good public transportation. It specifically cited BucShot, the ETSU transit system that serves the greater campus area as a perk. The article also wrote that “…Johnson City is considered an economic hub which is largely fueled by East Tennessee State University and what’s called the Med-Tech corridor, linked by Johnson City Medical Center, Franklin Woods Community Hospital, ETSU’s Gatton College of Pharmacy and ETSU’s Quillen College of Medicine.”
