"A Crossroads of Medicine, the Arts, History, Humanism and Ethics"

Through a celebration of the arts, literature, history and the humanities, as well as a process of self-reflection and narrative, medical professionals can develop the broader perspectives necessary to understand the true impact of illness on the lives of their patients.  And, by pursuing their interests and passions in the arts, medical professionals will be able to find and maintain the essential balance necessary for them to be their best selves, both professionally and personally.
About Sir William Osler

William Osler's Words of Wisdom

A library represents the mind of its collector, his fancies and foibles, his strength and weakness, his prejudices and preferences. Particularly is this the case if, to the character of a collector, he adds — or tries to add — the qualities of a student who wishes to know the books and the lives of the men who wrote them. The friendships of his life, the phases of his growth, the vagaries of his mind, all are represented.
