The Arnold P. Gold Foundation Awards
As part of their Student Clinician's Ceremony, third year students select up to six residents to receive The Arnold P. Gold Foundation Humanism and Excellence in Teaching Award, based on their demonstrated commitment to teaching and compassionate treatment of patients and families, students and colleagues.
The Arnold P. Gold Foundation initiated the Humanism in Medicine Awards in 1991 to recognize a graduating medical student and a faculty member at over 85 of the nation's medical schools. The award is presented to those who exhibit humanism in their practice of medicine. Their relationships with their patients are respectful and compassionate. This is reflected in attitudes and behaviors that are sensitive to the values, autonomy, cultural and ethnic backgrounds of others.
