"Students of Medicine, Apprentices of the Guild, with whom are the promises and in whom center our hopes -- let me congratulate you on the choice of calling which offers a combination of intellectual and moral interests found in no other profession, and not met with at all in the common pursuits of life -- a combination which, in the words of Sir James Paget, 'offers the most complete and constant union of those three qualities which have the greatest charm for pure and active minds -- novelty, utility and charity.' "
-William Osler to the students entering the University of Minnesota School of Medicine in 1892.
Orientation will be August 12-13, 2013. Classes start August 14th.
