Gold Humanism Honors Society
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. One Chapter of the Foundation is MSIH.
This year MSIH students participated in the Gold Foundation’s “Solidarity Week for Compassionate Patient Care” – a week of recognition around for all GHHS chapters, medical schools, and patient care institutions to celebrate their dedication to ensuring compassionate, patient-centered care.”
MSIH Chapter Acts of Compassionate Patients Care
In February MSIH students brainstormed creative ideas for how to show appreciation for their classmates and the community of Soroka Hospital. Led enthusiastically by Jenna Meyer (Class of 2020) and Katie Ida Halper (Class of 2019), they crafted birthday cards for newborn babies in the Neonatology Department of the hospital, to give to the new mothers. Supplies were also provided to allow students to write notes of encouragement and gratitude to one another.
These projects enhanced the already inclusive and supportive environment at MSIH and gave students an additional avenue to contribute to the hospital community.
