Medical student numbers in Australian universities have more than doubled since 2000. There are concerns about the ability for existing clinical training sites to accommodate this increase in student numbers, and there have been calls to increase training in private hospitals. The receptiveness of patients in private hospitals will in?uence the success of such placements. Aims: We aimed to evaluate whether patients in a private hospital are as receptive to medical students as patients in a public hospital
