Current MS3s (Class of 2019)— Please nominate your peer classmates, residents and faculty members for induction into the 2018-2019 class of the IUSM chapter of the Gold Humanism Honor Society! To submit your nominations, please complete this brief online survey no later than Monday, March 5.

The Arnold P. Gold Foundation strives to create the gold standard in health care by advancing humanism in medicine by promoting and affirming more compassion in medical care and among caregivers. The Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS) recognizes students, residents and faculty who exhibit extraordinary examples of compassion, while serving as role models, mentors and leaders.

IU School of Medicine opened its chapter of the Gold Humanism Honor Society in 2005 and created an important recognition for senior medical students, residents and faculty. This honor, given to 10 percent of the senior class, is also recognized by Electronic Residency Application Services (ERAS) and considered in many National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) match rankings.

Entry to GHHS relies on a peer nomination process. Nominees with multiple votes will be asked to submit a brief application for selection committee review in late March. Final notification of GHHS awardees will occur in the spring to allow  rising seniors to get involved in chapter activities.
