TUCOM Gold Humanism Honor Society
In March of 2015, the TUCOM-GHHS accepted the exceptional members from the Class of 2016 to its sixth cohort.
It was an extremely difficult decision due to the large number of highly qualified and worthy nominees.
These student physicians were initially nominated by their peers, then narrowed down and further selected by the TUCOM-GHHS Selection Committee based upon their embodiment of the ideals of humanism in medicine: Compassion, Professionalism, Commitment to the highest standard of patient care, Ethics, and Volunteering in the community.
Please join us as we congratulate and welcome our new members (in alphabetical order):
We look to these members to help mature our chapter of the internationally recognized GHHS, and to bring more events and focus on Humanism in Medicine to our campus and community.
Their website may be accessed here: http://www.humanism-in-medicine.org
Members will be nominated by their peers in their third year. The top nominees will then be selected by faculty comprising the Selection Committee, and asked to submit a Humanism Portfolio. As set forth by the Gold Foundation, up to 10-15% of the class may be inducted.
All candidates inducted into TUCOM GHHS embody the ideals of humanism, demonstrated by:
-An osteopathic understanding of the mind, body and spirit connection
-Caring and kindhearted to all
-Professionalism with colleagues and patients
-Commitment to the highest standard of patient care
-Ethical in all situations
The induction ceremony for the honorees will be a formal dinner held in May or June (coinciding with the timing of Callbacks for that class). Honorees may invite friends and family to share in this momentous occasion.
