Short biography
Osler is the great towering figure of modern medicine. Perhaps his most significant contribution was establishing the practice of the medical residency for doctors. He once said, "I desire no other epitaph. . . than the statement that I taught medical students in the wards, as I regard this as by far the most useful and important work I have been called upon to do."
