John P. McGovern Academy of Oslerian Medicine

In 2001, Houston physician-philanthropist John P. McGovern donated $5 million to provide endowments for the William Osler Scholars: practicing physicians on the School of Medicine faculty selected based on their history of giving highly competent, humane, compassionate care and serving as outstanding teachers and role models for these qualities. Each Osler Scholar holds the honor for five years; together, they comprise the new John P. McGovern, M.D., Academy of Oslerian Medicine.
