The Humanism and Excellence in Teaching Award (HETA) recognizes outstanding humanistic teaching residents as identified by their students. Third year medical students select up to six residents to receive The Arnold P. Gold Foundation Humanism and Excellence in Teaching Award, based on their exceptional teaching skills and commitment to the compassionate treatment of patients and families, students and colleagues.
