For years, AMS has been providing medical schools across Canada with free copies of Sir William Osler 1849-1919: A Selection for Medical Students for distribution to their first year medical students. It is our belief that Ontario medical students will find this sampling of Osler’s writings interesting, challenging and pertinent to many of the questions that will arise in their mind as they mature into the practice of their noble profession.
We are pleased to be able to offer the book, free for download, to anyone who would like to learn about Osler’s lifelong interest in students, in libraries, and in the history of medicine. It is hoped that these and his other fine qualities may influence the readers of this selection.
This book is dedicated to Sir William Osler and to practitioners of medicine, far and wide. If you prefer to view the document as a PDF, you can access it here.
