The Research Institute

The Arnold P. Gold Foundation Research Institute helped accelerate discovery in humanism in healthcare, disseminate findings, and use those findings to make change. The Research Institute sunsetted in Fall 2018. The Jeffrey Silver Humanism in Healthcare Research Roundup continues; please sign up for our monthly compilation of recent studies. Learn more about the Mapping the Landscape work, below, and the many other programs of the Gold Foundation.
