[Extract] While there is a variety of models for operating a rural medical school, they all depend on the same key elements: people, places and patients. Key people include: staff, both academic and administrative; preceptors1and other clinical teachers; and students. Places include teaching and placement sites, and infrastructure to support student teaching and accommodation. Patients are key. While simulation can augment the clinical experience, there has to be enough breadth and depth of clinical activity and patient exposure to support the planned number of students.
