Sir william Osler- Quotes

Posted by iskanbasal on March 16, 2009

When our physician forebear Sir William Osier (1849-1919) was asked what
his most important contribution to medicine was, Osler stated simply:

“I desire no other epitaph . . . than the statement that I taught medical students
on the wards, as I regard this as by far the most useful and important work
I have been called upon to do” (Osler, 1905).

In using the term student, Osler generally was referring to all trainees in medicine—interns and residents as
well as students. They were all his junior colleagues, as he described them.

I picked up this quote from the introduction of the book : Resident’s teaching skills by Janine Edward.
