Osler NC

Welcome to the Osler Society of North Carolina.

Sir William Osler(1849-1919)

Johns Hopkins Medicine


Sir William Osler
has to examine a patient, write a history, make a diagnosis, write prescriptions and complete a super bill in 15 minutes or less because that is all the time allowed by the clinic where he is employed in 21st Century America.

Absurd?  Ridiculous?  Of course!  Yet for most practicing physicians in the USA it is a sad reality.

The Osler Society of North Carolina, Inc.

The Osler Society of North Carolina, Inc. has been started by directives from Dr. Myron Weisfeldt, Osler Professor of Medicine at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. 
Ours is a young, dynamic, energetic organization which will address current issues in medicine and society through the eyes and in the spirit of Sir William Osler, one of the most revered physicians of all times.

In order to accomplish this we will utilize the Chinard collection after professor Francis P. Chinard of University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.

There will be seminars on the issues given below which will be recorded and sent to North Carolina for the use of the Osler Society in each of the four medical schools in the state. Other activities will include scheduled meetings with special presentations and social gatherings.

As the Society grows we hope to provide aid to promising N.C. students and serve as a bridge between Johns Hopkins and the four medical schools in N.C.
