Sir William Osler (1849-1919) is often considered the pre-eminent physician of the 20th century. A humanist who emphasized compassion for the individual, a doctor whose bedside skills and manner were emulated by admirers and students, an educator whose concepts revolutionized clinical teaching, Osler is regarded by many as the ideal medical practitioner. His eloquent essays and speeches, laced with principles and precepts written in an aphoristic style, have influenced generations of physicians.
This newly revised and updated paperback edition of The Quotable Osler is the ideal resource for those seeking an apt quote for an article or presentation, or for those wanting to sample Osler’s thought-provoking and uplifting messages. Osler’s meaningful and valuable teachings are timeless, and this new paperback edition is a wonderful gift for a fellow physician, medical student, or a graduating resident.
The Quotable Osler is also available in a deluxe leather-bound edition at www.acponline.org/acppress
