Nature:

In 1995, a British Medical Association report stated that British medical schools fail to give doctors the training that they need, namely less rote learning and more continuous assessment. In addition, hospitals need to supervise new doctors properly and to discard the philosophy of education by humiliation. Medical misadventure in hospital commonly involves unsupervised junior doctors.

In Britain, doctors are not trained how to communicate, how to avert errors or how to deal with patient complaints, and this increases the risk of making repeated medical errors and suffering serious malpractice suits.
