Ahead of the Global Community Engaged Medical Education Muster Conference in October, this Virtual Issue on Rural Medicine and Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships assembles 24 articles published in Rural and Remote Health since 2001 that document the rural history of the global Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship (LIC) movement. Rural LICs have contributed significantly to recruitment and retention of the medical workforce in low resource rural areas, as well as to providing medical students with broad and authentic clinical learning opportunities and experience of inter-professional team approaches.
