Rural Medicine and Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships

Guest editors: Lucie Walters and Leesa Walker
This Virtual Issue 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.
