This lecture will highlight the impact of Sir William Osler and Osler's American student, Wilburt Davison, who trained with Osler at Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar and became the founding dean of Duke University School of Medicine where a young Jack McGovern came to train in the early 1940s. The influence of the Oxford/Osler/Davison connection changed McGovern's life with positive implications on medical education to this day. Eight years after his death, Dr McGovern continues to touch our medical community on a global scale as the author's stories of his life-and the back stories-will tell.
