Educated at Trinity College, Ontario, the Toronto School of Medicine and McGill University in Montreal, Osler received his medical degree in 1872. After some post-graduate study in Europe, he became a professor at McGill where he taught for ten years.

While at Johns Hopkins, he established the medical residency program, which became a universal standard in the medical profession. In 1892, he published The Principles and Practice of Medicine, which became the standard text on clinical medicine for over 40 years. In 1893, he became one of the first professors at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. In 1905, he was appointed Regius Chair of Medicine at Oxford University, a position he held until his death during the Spanish Influenza epidemic of 1919. In 1911, he was awarded a baronetcy for his contributions to medical science. His works include Clinical Notes on Small-Pox (1876), Aequanimitas and Other Addresses (1889), On Chorea and Choreiform Affections (1894), Lectures on Angina Pectoris and Allied States (1897), Science and Immortality (1904), Counsels and Ideals (1905), Modern Medicine, Its Theory and Practice (1907), An Alabama Student and Other Biographical Essays (1908), Treatment of Disease (1909), The Evolution of Modern Medicine (1913), Bacilli and Bullets (1914) and The Old Humanities and the New Science (1919).
