It was ransdell finally trying to get his last stamp before he left. I think it's a terrible idea to do a joint venture.

Congrats MT! The city of Charlotte is one of the largest metro areas in the U.S. without a med school. Many Charlotte alumni would love to see us pursue a med school but our current chancellor seems uninterested in the effort or doing anything that would upset his friends in Chapel Hill.

Today, MT & Meharry Medical College announced a joint venture for MT undergrads to enroll at Meharry in Nashville for B.S./M.D combo. Meharry is oldest, historically black medical & dental school in the south. While we are not acquiring Meharry as a school of medicine under the MT Umbrella, this is a big deal for endowment and overall promotion. I know UAB has its own medical school, and a few other members may boast of professional degree attractions. So, who else has a Professional school of Medicine, Law, Engineering, Dentistry, etc.?

Marshall has a Medical School; School of Pharmacy and a College of Engineering in Huntington.

Isn't the Bowling Green medical program under the direction of the University of Kentucky? I know of a couple of public universities that have satellite programs in urban areas.

There is a UTHSC campus in Nashville already. And Memphis and Knoxville are only short drives away

I presume we didn't buy the former location of the Middle Tennessee Medical Center just for the property. Could certainly turn that into a med school and it's right there next to campus.

A check of the UTHSC website suggest the only programs that the Orange Med School have in Nashville are their residency programs at St. Thomas and an affiliation in pharmacy. I don't believe UT medical or dental students are in the mid-state prior to graduation. Regarding Memphis and Knoxville being a "short drive away":lmfao: When's the last time you made that 3+ (or 4) hour commute? I don't want to go all Chamber of Commerce on you; but nobody picks Memphis or Knoxville over Nashville, if they have a choice.04-chairshot

Being that St Thomas Rutherford carries the old MTMC banner I don't see that property being anything medical related. Maybe I'm wrong.

The point of my post was that if the state decided that Nashville needed a full scale public med school to go along with the two other med schools already in the city, they'd likely just expand UTHSC vs starting something from scratch under the MTSU banner.

Also, believe it or not, there are people who prefer Memphis and Knoxville to Nashville. And for the med student taking on tens of thousands in debt, the lower cost of living is very attractive.
