Gold Humanism Scholars at the Harvard Macy Institute Program for Educators

Read about our 2023-2024 Gold Humanism Scholars.

The Arnold P. Gold Foundation sponsors partial scholarships of $5,000 for up to two Gold Humanism Scholars at the Harvard Macy Institute 2023/2024 Program for Educators.

This highly interactive faculty development program trains participants in innovative methods to teach and assess health professional learners. We select medical and nursing 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.
