Humanism and Excellence in Teaching Award

HETA pinAs part of their Student Clinician’s Ceremony, third year medical 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.

Each award winner is presented with a certificate, a specially designed gold lapel pin and a check for $250 from The Gold Foundation. Once a Student Clinician’s Ceremony has been established at a medical school, The Gold Foundation will continue to provide up to six Humanism and Excellence in Teaching Awards each year.
