Careers

The Gold Foundation is a healthcare-related 501 (c)(3) with a small staff, yet wide and influential reach in the healthcare industry. The Foundation works to ensure that healthcare professionals provide patient care that is as compassionate as it is technologically sophisticated. We are well known across the US in academic medical education as change agents and have more recently been extending our programs and strategies into nursing education as well as to all the places where care is delivered.

Our Mission: The Gold Foundation champions humanism in healthcare, which we define as compassionate, collaborative, and scientifically excellent care. This Gold standard of care embraces all and targets barriers to such care. We empower experts, learners, and leaders to together create systems and cultures that support humanistic care for all.

We have embarked on a multi-year strategic plan to expand and grow our footprint which includes continuing and extending our work with medical and nursing education, corporate partners, foundations, hospitals, and community health centers to ensure that humanistic, compassionate, and co-produced healthcare is implemented systemically.

The Gold Foundation has a strong commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and anti-racism, values rooted in our mission of humanism in healthcare for all. We are building a diverse team, and we encourage candidates from historically underrepresented groups to apply.
