JOSEPH M. MOLINA, M.D.
To the editor: I wish to compliment Dr. Hurst on his thought-provoking article (1) in which he uses a fictional visit by Sir William Osler as visiting professor to express his own views on the essential skills to be emphasized in training house officers. The fictional Osler states, "I like the name house pupil . . . House implies that you remain in the hospital as though it is your home, and pupil indicates that you must remain a student of medicine forever." Osler would have agreed with this statement in principal, as he resided within the Johns Hopkins Hospital
