Tomorrow, the three finalists from the Osler Society and Osler Library Board of Curators Essay Contest will present their essays.
The contest gives undergraduate medical students the opportunity to explore a theme of interest to them in the history, social studies, ethics, and humanities of the medicine. Through the course of writing their essay, they are mentored by an expert in their topic drawn from the Osler Library’s Board of Curators, the Department of Social Studies of Medicine, or elsewhere. It is also a chance to use the rich resources and expertise of the Osler Library to craft their essay. Out of 20 student proposals, 8 essays were submitted and 3 finalists have been chosen.
- Julia Hickey, “The Predominance of Osler’s Humanism in the Practice of Palliative Care”
- Susan Mengxiao Ge, “Observation: The Importance of Art in Medicine”
- Jennifer Pors, “Blood Ties: A History of Blood Transfusion”
Please join us from 9:30-11:00 in room 210 of the McIntyre Medical Building to hear from our three finalists. The winner will be announced at the Osler Banquet on Wednesday, November 6.
