Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for social distancing, many Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS) inductions are being shifted to virtual events. Traditionally, these gatherings brought new inductees together with their family members, friends, faculty mentors, and medical school leaders to celebrate and support them as role models of humanistic care.
Humanism in healthcare is more critical than ever in this crisis, and the Gold Foundation encourages GHHS chapters to continue to hold their 2020 inductions. These virtual events reinforce the importance of humanism, honor those who have demonstrated a commitment to humanistic care, and provide a bright light and moment of joy in this difficult time.
The Gold Foundation has assembled resources to help your GHHS chapter create a virtual induction ceremony, including a welcome video and PowerPoint slides for your program. The Gold Foundation can help provide a recording of your ceremony. Gold Foundation representatives are also available to join your virtual ceremony to say a few brief words and congratulate your newest inductees.
Please see below for details. When you are ready to share your ceremony time/date and inductees’ information, and request access to the tools you’d like to use during your ceremony, please fill out the GHHS Virtual Induction Form.
