Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

Powers and duties under program.
Under the forensic psychiatry fellowship training program created under Section 5 of this Act, the University of Illinois at Chicago and Southern Illinois University shall each have all of the following powers and duties:
(1) The university's undergraduate and graduate
programs may increase their service and training commitments in order to provide mental health care to chronically mentally ill populations in this State.
(2) The university shall coordinate service,
education, and research in mental health and may work with communities, State agencies, other colleges and universities, private foundations, health care providers, and other interested organizations on innovative strategies to respond to the challenges of providing greater physician presence in the field of forensic psychiatry. However, the majority of the clinical rotations of the fellows must be served in publicly supported programs in this State.
(3) The university may establish such clinical and
educational centers and may cooperate with other universities and associations as may be necessary to carry out the intent of this Act according to the following priorities:
(A) a preference for programs that are designed
to enroll, educate, and facilitate the graduation of mental health professionals trained in forensic psychiatry and other forensic mental health sub-specialties; and
(B) a preference for public sector programs that
involve networking with other agencies, organizations, and institutions that have similar objectives.
