To the Editor: The article by Eley and colleagues clearly articulates challenges and solutions for providing quality undergraduate medical education in rural locations.1 Simulation-based education (SBE) also helps meet the challenge of providing quality rural medical education. Simulation is an ethical means of supporting the development of technical and non-technical skills relevant for safe and competent clinical practice. SBE can be used creatively to prepare, supplement and enhance rural clinical placements.
