Aphorism of the Day

"The practice of Medicine is an art, not a trade; 
a calling, not a business;
a calling in which your heart will be exercised equally with your head." 

Sir William Osler (1849-1919)  

Note: Called the "Father of Modern Medicine", this Canadian from Ontario and graduate in Medicine from the McGill University, in 1889 founded the Johns Hoptins Universtiy School of Medicine. In 1905 he became the Regius Chair of Medicine at Oxford. Perhaps his greatest contribution to Medicine was to stress the importance to talking and learning from patients, which led him to establish a full time "sleep-in" residency and  to stress early bedside teaching of medical students. Osler also was a jokester and published under a pseudonym (Egerton Yorrick Davis), a medical report on "penis captivus". His book "Equanimitas" remains a guide to thoughful physicians.
