Gold Humanism Honor Society

The Arnold P. Gold Foundation initiated the Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS) in 2001 in hopes that the values of humanism and professionalism would be recognized in individuals that demonstrate excellence in clinical care, leadership, compassion, and dedication to service. There is a growing recognition that a health care provider’s professionalism and humanism directly and tangibly improve the quality of patient care, just as does a physician’s mastery of the science of medicine. In 2007 the George Washington University joined more than 50 medical schools in establishing a chapter of the GHHS. We seek to recognize and validate the importance of empathy, altruism, and professionalism in the establishment of healing relationships between physicians and patients.

We are proud to recognize honorees from the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences that have been nominated by their peers and confirmed by members of the staff and faculty as outstanding examples of professionalism and humanism.
