About GHHS

The Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS) recognizes individuals who are exemplars of compassionate patient care and who serve as role models, mentors, and leaders in medicine. GHHS members are peer nominated and are the future physicians their peers would choose to care for their own family members during times of illness. The Society currently has over 35,000 members in training and practice. Membership in GHHS goes beyond selection and induction into an honor society. Its members have a responsibility to model, support, and advocate for compassionate, patient-centered care throughout their careers.

The GHHS is a signature program of The Arnold P. Gold Foundation, which seeks to elevate the values of humanism and professionalism within the field of medicine and its constituent institutions.

The Society currently has over 35,000 members in training and practice. The David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA Chapter of the Gold Humanism Honor Society recognizes senior medical students, residents, and role-model physician teachers for "demonstrated excellence in clinical care, leadership, compassion, and dedication to service." GHHS serves as a steadfast advocate for humanism through a variety of activities for students and healthcare professionals.
