Teaching hospital system safety questioned

United Press International, December 20, 2010

The training model for medical residents, which moves them quickly from observing to practicing on patients, is known as "see one, do one, teach one."

To that, Dr. Bertrand Bell, professor of medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York and a leader of efforts to reform resident supervision, told The Dallas Morning News he would add: "Sometimes kill one."
