Humanism in Practice

GHHS membership is lifelong. We offer programs and events to support your leadership in humanism long after you graduate medical school throughout your career.
We intend to provide programming and resources that will allow for opportunities for you to share ideas with like-minded professionals and be part of a network of advocates for compassionate patient care.


We aim to foster relationship building amongst alumni by helping to build connections and by sharing how members are continuing to embody the mission and values of the foundation. We offer networking tools to develop mentoring relationships and a platform for individuals to showcase current projects or give recognition.

We have started a new LinkedIn group for Gold Humanism Honor Society members to provide an easy way for you to connect with other leaders of humanism across the globe.

The group is private, only open to Gold Humanism Honor Society members. Click here to request to join.

Networking Tools Guidelines and Rules

In the spirit of the Gold Humanism Honor Society, please share with compassion and openness to collaboration and deeper understanding. Any post deemed inappropriate based on our guidelines will be removed; any member who consistently posts inappropriate content will be removed from the group.

Please do not post any solicitations or advertisements. Please refrain from vulgar language, political and religious discussions, and abusive, sexist, and racist remarks. Posts with offensive or derogatory comments will be removed.

Please be mindful of posting any copyrighted materials and be respectful of privacy, including your patients and your own.

We believe that all members will act appropriately, given the humanistic nature of all of our Gold Humanism Honor Society members.

Professional Development

We recognize the importance of continued development for medical professionals. Continuous development can range from learning how to maintain and teach humanism during residency and beyond and being plugged into educational opportunities like webinars, lectures, and podcasts.


The Gold Humanism InSight Webinar series

Healthcare practitioners, professionals, and learners are seeking out inspirational live and pre-recorded virtual webinars from Gold Ambassadors and heavy hitters from our Gold Circle Network of Speakers, often in close collaboration with our esteemed partners.

The Gold Foundation, along with its esteemed partners and Gold Ambassadors, are leading the way through action in humanism in healthcare during this dual pandemic – by providing webinars that feature strategic initiatives and systemic solutions to help mitigate and improve healthcare outcomes during these challenging times. These will illustrate all the ways we can pivot during the novel COVID-19 virus as well as rethinking social injustice issues.

You can view prerecording webinars here.

Sign up to be a facilitator at grief & resilience workshop at our 2022 virtual conference.
We are exploring a possible session to address grief and resilience as part of our virtual conference in spring 2022 for the GHHS International Initiative. During this interactive workshop, members of GHHS and the Gold community will participate in small, intimate groups. They will be prompted by a facilitator to reflect, write, and share individual reflections and discover personally useful coping tools they can draw on in the future.
