Abstract This paper describes the approach taken at the University of Queensland to broaden the scope of curriculum design to involve rural general practitioners, medical students and rural health care consumers. A form of nominal group process in serial telephone teleconferences was used, with a group of rural general practitioners, to develop and pilot curriculum content, learning strategies and assessment methods. Medical students assisted in the evaluation of the curriculum and representatives of rural organisations were consulted about the value of hosting medical students in rural communities. The three groups made significant contributions to the project. The results will be trialed for the entire year 6 cohort (240 students) in 1995 and will form the basis of the planned rural practice term in the new graduate course.
