A new hospital organisation for receiving acute patients has been introduced in Denmark. All patients with acute problems are to be received in an interdisciplinary ward (IW). This study examines how junior doctors evaluate training in the IW. A questionnaire was sent to 558 doctors who went through postgraduate basic training in 2009 and 2010. The response rate was 63%. Sixty-eight doctors had been trained in IW. The responders found that training in IW had a high educational potential. They appreciated the broad training in acute conditions from several specialities. However, the educational management could be improved.
