Gold Humanism Ceremony

Since 2005, the IU School of Medicine chapter of the national Arnold P. Gold Foundation Gold Humanism Honor Society has continued to grow. With more than 180 chapters in both medical schools and residency programs across the United States, the organization has more than 45,000 members.

The Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS) acknowledges students, resident physicians and faculty for their commitment to patient-centered medical care, as well as their integrity, respect, compassion, excellence, altruism and empathy. Peers nominate students during their third year of medical school, while the IU School of Medicine GHHS selection committee determines the final selections.

Resident inductee Chiamara Anokwute, MD, said it best : “To embody humanism is to see the individual, see the group and find common ground for improving patient care and the well-being of those doing the caring. For me, that means having a singular purpose: to always do right by the patient with kindness and compassion.”
