The University awarded a contract for OSF Healthcare Supervisory Physician Services to OSF Healthcare Inc., Peoria, IL, for an estimated $575,442.
The College of Medicine at Peoria, Department of Medicine requires OSF Hospitalists who are board certified in internal medicine with experience as supervisor/teaching physicians for resident physicians-in-training in internal medicine and hospitalist care.

OSF Saint Francis has board-certified physicians in internal medicine and pediatrics that also have experience as a Hospitalist for medical residents-in-training. The OSF Supervisory Physician or Hospitalist must also have clinical research experience that is essential to the educational and training mission of the medical resident-in-training program. The Hospitalists at OSF also have privileges to perform patient care at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the The College of Medicine at Peoria's residents are trained at OSF. OSF has been providing an internal medicine certified supervisory physician since October 2008.
