East Tennessee State University’s Quillen College of Medicine may one day train Virginia students in Abingdon, Va., if discussions being held now come to a suitable conclusion.

Philip Bagnell, medical dean at ETSU, said a memorandum of understanding was signed recently to look at the possibility of establishing a Quillen presence in Abingdon, Va., with the collaboration of King School of Medicine, Inc.

King School of Medicine, Inc. was established to set up and oversee the King School of Medicine & Health Sciences Center. The entity is not affiliated with Bristol-based King University, though the school first proposed a medical college under its leadership back in 2008. This venture was turned over to King School of Medicine, Inc. Abingdon was chosen as the site of this new school, which has not yet been established.
