Sir William Osler 1849-1919: A Selection for Medical Students
A new generation of medical students is taking notice of William Osler.
Long a celebrated leader in medicine, Osler was also a flawed figure who expressed sexist and racist views, and helped entrench a medical profession that privileged those who were white, male, and Christian. As a Canadian physician who became the most influential medical educator in the English-speaking world, Osler’s imprint on North American medical education today is pervasive and deserves continued scrutiny. AMS is proud to make available this free download of Sir William Osler 1849-1919: A Selection for Medical Students.
For over a century, Osler’s writings have inspired clinicians to remain lifelong students of the human condition—how might they motivate you to learn, practice, and teach medicine in the 21st century?
