Eleven medical students from the Doctor of Medicine Class of 2019 at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) were inducted into the Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS) on June 18 at the School’s 10th annual GHHS induction ceremony in Grand Forks.
The event’s keynote speaker John J. Hagan, MD, clinical associate professor of internal medicine at the UND SMHS, is a 2011 recipient of the Leonard Tow Humanism in Medicine Award.
Limited to fifteen percent of the senior class, this year's inductees were selected through a process that included peer nomination and subsequent confirmation by the School’s Gold Humanism Honor Society Oversight Committee. Students considered for chapter membership are in good academic standing and are recognized for their outstanding humanistic behaviors.
Honorees from the Class of 2019, and their hometowns, are the following:
Peter L. White, MD, clinical professor of Internal Medicine at the SMHS and critical care specialist at CHI St. Alexius Health in Bismarck, N.D., was also inducted into the Gold Humanism Honor Society as the faculty recipient of the Leonard Tow Humanism in Medicine Award.
Committed to fostering a culture of professionalism and humanism, the School’s Gold Humanism Honor Society chapter provides a formal mechanism to highlight and recognize, as a group, those students who exhibit high levels of humanistic qualities in their day-to-day lives. These qualities include integrity; sound moral reasoning; compassion and empathy toward patients; effective communication skills; the ability to engender trust and confidence among patients, staff, and colleagues; and a deep commitment to humanitarian services.
The Gold Humanism Honor Society is funded by a grant from the Arnold P. Gold Foundation.
