Deadline for Applications to the Arnold P. Gold Foundation – August 8, 2016
The Arnold P. Gold Foundation is sponsoring partial scholarships of $5,000 for up to eight Gold Humanism Scholars at the Harvard Macy Institute 2017 Program for Educators (tuition is $5,900, travel/lodging is additional). We seek to support health profession educators working to develop and enhance educational projects focused on achieving humanistic patient care that can be replicated across a variety of healthcare delivery settings.
The Gold Foundation aims to restore a more effective balance between the cutting edge science of medicine and the delivery of compassionate, patient-centered care. The Foundation defines the attributes of a humanistic caregiver as one who demonstrates respect for a patient’s concerns and provides compassionate care for a patient’s physical and emotional well-being.
