Sir William Osler | Father of Modern Medicine

Sir William

From Bond Head, Ontario

Sir William Osler was a physician and one of the four founding professors of Johns Hopkins Hospital.

  • Born in 1849 in Bond Head, Canada West

“To study medicine without books is to sail an uncharted sea; while to study medicine only from books is not to go to sea at all.”

William Osler

Osler created the first residency program for specialty training of physicians, and he was the first to bring medical students out of the lecture hall for bedside clinical training. He has frequently been described as the “Father of Modern Medicine”. In 1892, he published his most famous work, Principles and Practice of Medicine. Osler was a person of many interests, who in addition to being a physician, was a bibliophile, historian, author, and renowned practical joker.
