We use COTH
membership to define teaching status at this juncture in an effort to use a more comparable definition to AHA.
COTH members tend to have a much higher ratio of interns and residents per bed than non-COTH teaching hospitals.

It is noted that coth
x converges to l rapidly as x increases.

Turning next to teaching status, compared to hospitals with either minor teaching or no teaching program, COTH hospitals were significantly less efficient on the overall and scale measures, but did outperform the other two types of hospitals in both pure technical inefficiency and quality congestion.

7) Very few hospitals in nonmetropolitan areas were COTH
members or were classified as major teaching hospitals based on their intern-to-bed ratio, and very few offered transplant services or had a burn unit.
We include dummy variables for hospital ownership (public or for-profit, relative to private nonprofit) and teaching status (member of COTH
, the Council of Teaching Hospitals), and hospital size measured as the number of beds.
This model was expanded to include another dichotomous variable indicating major teaching status, defined as membership in COTH
Four percent of hospitals reported membership in the COTHs
, 13 percent reported they were nonmembers but were involved in medical education.
