Formatted Abstract/Summary
Approaches to rural medical education can be characterised in many ways. One significant dichotomy is the tension between all students receiving some rural experience versus providing some students with a longer encounter. Shorter terms provide a snapshot of rural practice and allow students who have had little or no previous rural experience to become acquainted with, and hopefully inspired to continue with, rural practice. The longer longitudinal clerkships, on the other hand, usually involve twelve-month placements and are usually targeted at students with a rural background or students who have an expressed interest in rural practice. This chapter concentrates on the shorter rural exposure and how to maximise the benefit of this experience.
