Notable Quotables: Sir William Osler

"One of the first duties of the physician is to educate the masses not to take medicine
- Sir William Osler 

If you haven't heard of Dr. Osler yet I would recommend clicking here to read a little bit.  He basically invented the idea of residency training and was the first guy who thought maybe medical students should get some bedside training and get out of lecture halls.  I think the sentiment of this quotation is fantastic, it really drives home the core of practice which shies away from the idea of overmedication and really medication at all.
