“I chose the Memphis campus because the city is abundant in opportunity and promise, especially in the medical profession with the high quality and diverse medical facilities available to us as students. Learning on a campus with other health professions allows students to establish an open-minded outlook that proves beneficial to any medical team.”

“My interest in the Nashville campus first started when I learned about its small, cozy size, as well as the close relationships held between the student body and professors. Upon visiting the city I fell in love with the relaxed, friendly small town atmosphere coupled with the energetic feel and amenities that Nashville offers. The city is known for its cultural diversity and innovation in health care and technology providing great opportunities to learn about other avenues of pharmacy.”

“I was ready to experience the mountains, the outdoors, the collegetown, and the rich history that Knoxville has to offer. Knoxville is not too big, not too small, and feels like a place you can call home. Located right next to the UT Medical Center, you are put right in the center of the medical world which makes for an excellent learning experience.”
