The John P. McGovern Academy of Oslerian Medicine was founded
to recognize physicians who provide highly compassionate care and
to encourage the teaching and practice of such care to medical students.
The John P. McGovern Academy of Oslerian Medicine was created in 2001 and
provides endowments to William Osler Scholars.
The Academy also has student societies
which foster compassionate, scientifically sound patient-centered care.
