School of Medicine’s Gold Humanism Honor Society adds 31 new members

The UMKC School of Medicine Gold Humanism Honor Society welcomed its 2022 class of 31 students, faculty and medical residents during a Feb. 24 induction ceremony.

This year’s class included 21 fifth-year students, four faculty physicians and six residents nominated by their colleagues. Inductees embody the School of Medicine’s foundational traits of compassionate patient care, professionalism and humanism. They are selected annually based on demonstrated excellence in clinical care, leadership, compassion, and dedication to service.

Members are viewed by their peers as role models for humanistic care within their communities. The society also provides educational events, supports research, promotes professional growth and creates networking opportunities.

The GHHS is a national honor society established in 2002 with sponsorship from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Today, GHHS has more than 175 chapters in medical schools and residency programs throughout the country and more than 40,000 members who serve as role models in health care.
