Is this COM a good school??? How good is it's reputation?
It is an excellent primary care school.
I'm a first-year at Quillen and will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the school or the area.
As far as reputation goes, the poster above is accurate- Quillen is a relatively young school (founded in the late 1970's) so it isn't as nationally known as older schools. The school does have a very strong reputation in primary care; if you care about rankings, US News ranks it in the top 25 primary care schools. Family medicine, in particular, is a very strong department here. Still, a fair number of our graduates end up specializing- I think about 40% of graduates end up doing something other than primary care and every year, you get a handful of people matching in derm, ortho, radiology, etc.
What you don't get at Quillen is a lot of the high-powered research (though there are some opportunities for research, e.g., in Family Medicine, but not a lot of bench research). You also don't get a lot of big city medicine- you won't see things like heart or liver transplants here. But if you have a strong interest in primary care, there's no reason to look any further.
I've never heard of Quillen. Is this an MD or DO school? Where is it?
If your an out of stater, I wouldn't recommend applying.
