Featuring uniquely regional research

The University of Minnesota Medical School, Duluth Campus has launched the new online, open-access Journal of Regional Medical Campuses (JRMC), published every other month in collaboration with the University of Minnesota Libraries.

The first-of-its-kind journal offers the medical school community a place to publish educational findings and research specific to the 115 regional medical campuses located in the United States and Canada. 

“The JRMC was born out of a need to tell our stories and share our unique perspectives and challenges,” says Paula Termuhlen, M.D., regional campus dean and JRMC’s editor-in-chief. “The JRMC is our opportunity to enhance the academic environments of our campuses by creating a home for the scholarship produced on our campuses.” 

Faculty members and deans from regional campuses across North America make up the journal’s editorial board and serve as reviewers. 

JRMC’s inaugural issue explored such topics as physician-attorney collaboration, confidence building in first-year residents, and the primary care pipeline — all from the regional campus perspective.
