Something Dr. Bell said rung one.  ;)

I've heard some docs talking and they said the first two years weren't 
really anything that they remembered. Is it possible to do 1.5 years and 
spend more time on actually doing "doctor" work? I know I did a Citizens 
Police Academy where they took us thru "Police Training Light". 
Simulations and the like were done and let me tell you, those 
simulations, where you had to choose to fire a gun or not, really got 
you to think.

Maybe some simulations more with the newer doctors in school, 1/2 a year 
devoted more to doing than just passing the u smile?
