How are you?
A typical patient visit lasts 15 minutes, with only a small fraction of that time spent on empathy and reassurance.
That’s enough time to ask the question, but is it really enough time to hear the answer?
The Arnold P. Gold Foundation’s overarching goal is to create the Gold Standard in Healthcare—compassionate, collaborative and scientifically excellent care—to support clinicians throughout their careers, so the humanistic passion that motivates them at the beginning of their education is sustained throughout their practice.
OUR NEW BRAND
To keep pace with the changing healthcare landscape, we’ve widened our reach to include the entire healthcare team in our Community of Caring. We’ve created a new brand to reflect our expanded mission.
Our new logo— a golden Mobius loop—symbolizes the continuous bond of trust, respect and communication that connects healthcare professionals with their patients when humanism is at the core of medical practice.
