Australia's medical education system is undergoing a socially motivated transformation focused on improving access to medical care for rural and remote communities. A rural and remote backbone of Rural Clinical Schools (RCS), University Departments of Rural Health, regional medical schools, and the postgraduate college, ACRRM, have enabled community responsive innovation and partnerships with rural health services that once would have been difficult to imagine. This article argues that this transformation is succeeding because of the passionate leadership of rural medical and community leaders, government seed funding to encourage rural medicine as an academic discipline, rigorous research and consultation that underpinned each step of the innovation pathway, and a political campaign to invest in rural medical education as a form of rural social capital.
