To the Editor: Dr Allison and colleagues1 found that teaching hospitals have better processes of care and outcomes for patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). This is quite different from the results of our study2 of the same Cooperative Cardiovascular Project (CCP) data set. We found no independent association between teaching status and survival.
