DAHSL: Developing Academic Health Sciences Libraries


a collaboration to create the 21st century academic health sciences library…

Another new med school and library on the horizon…

King College in Bristol, Tennessee this week announced that it will pursue
the development of a four-year medical school. King College is a private
college founded by the Presbyterian church. The school has engaged Tripp
Umbach to conduct feasibility studies and hopes to matriculate its first
students in 2012. The President of the College said “the success of this
effort hinges on strong commitment and financial support from regional
healthcare providers and the surrounding communities.” Dr. Paul Stanton,
president of East Tennessee State University, said he was concerned that
ETSU’s clinical teaching sites in hospitals and outpatient settings could
suffer and has asked for more information from King officials. Tennessee
currently has five medical schools (Vanderbilt, Meharry, UT-Memphis,
ETSU/Quillen, and Lincoln Memorial University – DeBusk College of Osteopathic
Medicine). Bristol has a population of 24,000 and is 25 miles from Johnson
City, home of ETSU Quillen College of Medicine.
