Results Osler emphasised the Art of Detachment, the Virtue of Method, the Quality of Thoroughness and the Grace of Humility, which he considers the basic pillars on which a successful medical practice is achieved, Osler's words serve as a guiding light for physicians struggling with the demands of twenty first century medicine.
