Formatted abstract
I would like to report the results of a recent survey showing that junior doctors who undertook undergraduate training in a rural clinical school (RCS) felt better prepared for their new role as a doctor than those who did not.

In summary, given the imminent increase in medical graduates entering training hospitals, considerable work needs to be done to improve the quality of education provided for junior doctors in order to maintain a high-quality, supportive educational atmosphere.
