Gold Humanism Scholars at the Harvard Macy Institute Program for Educators

The Arnold P. Gold Foundation is sponsoring partial scholarships of $5,000 for up to two Gold Humanism Scholars at the Harvard Macy Institute 2022/2023 Program for Educators. We seek to support medical and nursing 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.

This highly interactive faculty development program trains participants in innovative methods to teach and assess health professional learners. We select healthcare educators whose work helps develop or evaluate educational projects focused on achieving humanistic patient care that can be replicated across a variety of healthcare delivery settings.

At HMI, Gold Humanism in Medicine Scholars join a community of international educators, and their interest in humanism permeates the educational environment of the Institute and facilitates new collaborative relationships moving forward.

The application period for the 2022-2023 Gold Humanism Scholarship has closed and applications are now under review. Applicants will be informed by mid-June, approximately 2 weeks prior to the HMI deadline.

The Gold Foundation champions humanism in healthcare, which we define as compassionate, collaborative, and scientifically excellent care. Those honored as Gold Humanism Scholars are expected to reflect these values in daily practice and to continuously strive to be exemplars of humanism in healthcare.
