Board Game Night at The Spot

This is an annual event hosted by the Vesalius Student Society. Even if board games aren't your thing, there's always plenty of food, fun, and silly hats, so come anyway! Members should feel free to bring their own games, but if you don't have any, dont worry...we have plenty of games such as the ever-popular "The Great Dalmuti" (as well as Cranium, Cards Against Humanity, Apples to Apples, etc.) Get ready to see the darker side of your classmates...you've been warned.

Andreas Vesalius
Andreas Vesalius
Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564) was a Belgian anatomist who is considered the founder of modern anatomy. His most noteworthy work, "De humani corporis fabrica", revolutionized the science of medicine and laid the foundation for modern human anatomy with accurate and detailed descriptions of the human body. Vesalius corrected many of Galen's descriptions finding that his century old work was based on animal dissections. Vesalius introduced the "hands-on" approach where the physician performed the dissection, instead of observing and reading from a Galenic text, which lead him to master the art of dissection and define human anatomy.


A Way of Life

The vision of the Osler Student Societies is to provide developing physicians insight into "A Way of Life", described by Sir William Osler, not through formal lecture, but through the guidance of mentors in contact with students within and outside their academic setting.
