Rural Information Connection

                               

 

The Rural Information Connection (RIC) Project supports the Rural Student Physician Program (RSPP) at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria.

The Library of the Health Sciences at Peoria is partnering with the Rural Student Physician Program (RSPP) at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria (UICOMP) to encourage the use of mobile resources among student physicians while immersed in a community-based extended clerkship.  One of the challenges of a rural environment is that community-based physicians are frequently unaffiliated with a large university and its library resources. This project will provide rural health student physicians, whom are likely to become unaffiliated health professionals by nature of their chosen career path, with knowledge of and experience with National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health (NLM/NIH) high quality resources.  By educating student physicians in the free NLM/NIH resources available for mobile devices, the RIC project will impact the health of our rural communities.                          

This project has been funded in whole or in part with Federal Funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract No. HHSN‐276‐2011‐ 00005C with the University of Illinois at Chicago.
