Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS) chapters celebrate resident physicians on a special day in February. In 2021, Thank a Resident Day will be Feb. 26!
Residency is a key component of graduate medical training, offering an in-depth exposure to medical practice. It can often lead to long working hours matched with many responsibilities. Resident physicians serve as the “house staff” of the hospital and are an integral part to the healthcare team, often serving as indispensable resources for medical students, especially during a clinical clerkship. Thank a Resident Day sets aside time to show our gratitude and appreciation for their compassionate care and special role in the healthcare team.
If your GHHS chapter, hospital, or institution is planning on participating in Thank a Resident Day, please fill out this form to share your plans and request “We (heart) our residents” stickers.
