Bringing 800 Doctors to Towns in Need for 60
For medical students growing up in a city, practicing in a small
town may never cross their minds. Illinois Farm Bureau's Rural
Illinois Medical Student Assistance Program (RIMSAP) sparks that
thinking by offering incentives to students who make the commitment
to serve a rural community when they become doctors.
IFB teamed up with the Illinois State Medical Society in 1948 to
create the RIMSAP program. If medical students agree to practice in
a rural community for at least five years after they graduate,
RIMSAP provides low-interest student loans and recommendations to
get into University of Illinois College of Medicine.
It's not easy to get into either the U of I medical school or the
RIMSAP program, but for those who do, its rewards are
More than 800 students have completed the program. Sure, some have
fulfilled their commitment and moved on, but others have fallen in
love with small-town living and have provided decades of quality
healthcare for their neighbors.
