Who is BMC Creative?
Biomedical Communications has been around for years here at the Quillen College of Medicine. Our specialization is health care design, production and project management, and we exclusively serve QCOM and the clinics of ETSU Physicians and Family Medicine. We also provide Scientific Graphic Posters for all University departments and students.
Our approach to meeting customer’s needs is the same as it has always been — we practice a one-stop-shop philosophy so to provide you a great product, for a competitive price, through a hassle-free process. Our custom-built web-based system brings you all the tools you need from a personalized dashboard via your workstation, tablet or mobile device, 24/7. On the BMC Creative StoreFront, you can:
- browse our complete product line
- order creative projects
- receive and approve cost estimates
- track status from project inception through production, including Identity/Postal/ETSU Number reviews and approvals
- reference historical data
- avoid eBucs purchase orders but still have access to approved costs and billing
At BMC Creative, we combine our institutional knowledge, resources, training, education and industry experience in the fields of marketing, design, production and mail to provide you with a dynamic team.
What is a one-stop-shop?

- Content Development
- High Quality Printing and Production
- Imagery, Illustration, and Coordination
- Variable Data and Mail Campaign Planning
- Coordination of Mail Fulfillment
- Identity and ETSU Number Reviews and Approvals
- Step-By-Step Project Status Updates

How do I order a product and services?
Your experience will be similar to online shopping: shop and choose a product, place the order, provide direction and give approvals, receive delivery.
When ordering, just let us know what your design needs are and we’ll work with you to create the look you need for that special event or function. Designers and production work closely together to make sure they’re resulting the most efficient end products.
A multitude of product options are included for production. And, we are glad to help you find just the right promotional or specialty items to fit your needs and budget. Check out our product line, or you can tell us what you’re looking for and we’ll research it!
How do I pay for my products?
Costs incurred on a project are “tied” to it through our customized system, and follow it throughout production. When the project is completed, costs are summarized for your review. Because we are internal, an eBucs purchase order isn’t necessary from the ETSU/QCOM customer. Once costs have been verified, the total is automatically deducted from the department’s provided index number or grant. If a purchase order is used for payment, (MEAC Clinics or VA) the project requestor can print an invoice directly from their project dashboard and process as needed. Students may pay for their projects with cash, credit card, or request their affiliated department sponsor their project.
