The Gold Humanism Honor Society
Four MSIH students were chosen to be inducted into the Gold Humanism Honor Society. The induction will take place at the MSIH Graduation Ceremony in May of 2022. The Arnold P. Gold Foundation’s goal is to create the “Gold Standard” in healthcare – compassionate, collaborative and scientifically excellent care – to support clinicians throughout their careers, so the humanistic passion that motivates them at the beginning of their education is sustained throughout their practice.
The Foundation works with healthcare professionals to ensure that compassion, respect and empathy are at the core of their healthcare interactions. More than 130 top medical schools are members of the Foundation – with a handful outside North America. MSIH has been a Chapter of the Foundation for 10 years. As MSIH Professor Dr. Shimon Glick states, “The spirit of humanism pervades our unique institution.”
These students were selected by their peers for qualities of integrity, excellence, compassion, altruism, respect, and empathy throughout their clinical studies. MSIH faculty and students recognize these students for their work in global health and their commitment to humanism. The honorees are: Kamal Kaur, Yael Straus, Eli Bernstein and Daniel Iluz.
Applying to Medical School
As the spring semester begins this month, some students may still be undecided about applying to medical school or may potentially be considering a gap year. At the Medical School for International Health (MSIH) admission is on a rolling basis and we typically accept applications through early May, so even if you are taking the MCAT in March or April, you can still apply.
The admission selection process is holistic and is based on undergraduate and graduate GPA, MCAT scores, extracurricular experience, recommendations, and interview assessments. While medical school admissions can be stressful, we aim to make the process as straightforward and enjoyable as possible. As one applicant stated, “This was the most pleasant interview and easy correspondence I have had with any program.”
