Leonard Tow Humanism in Medicine Awards recognize graduating students and faculty members who demonstrate both clinical excellence and outstanding compassion in the delivery of care and who show respect for patients, their families, and healthcare colleagues.
Due to the ever-changing and unprecedented COVID-19 situation, please contact Director of Program Initiatives Louisa Tvito at firstname.lastname@example.org regarding the status of Gold Foundation programs and their status.
The Gold Foundation launched this award in 1991 at Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons. The Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey began replicating these awards nationwide in 1998, with participation from The Gold Foundation. In 2003, thanks to a generous donation from Leonard Tow, these awards became solely sponsored and administered by The Gold Foundation.
