Good Medicine

Sir William Osler is widely considered the father of modern medical education and created the first residency specialty training program for doctors. He was famous not only for his glorious mustache but for his passion for drawing students out of the classroom and to the bedside of their patients. His influence can be seen throughout daily medical life, and he left behind volumes of wisdom, encouraging doctors to strive not just for technical proficiency but for humanism and compassion. I have illustrated a few shots of this mustached hero alongside some of my favorite Osler-isms.

Prints of these images can be found here at my Redbubble portfolio.
