The newest members of the EVMS Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS) were inducted on April 18.
GHHS recognizes individuals for practicing patient-centered medical care by modeling the qualities of integrity, excellence, compassion, altruism, respect and empathy.
Members may be selected as third-year medical students. Residents, faculty and administrators may also be recognized for humanistic practice at various stages in their career.
Humanism in medicine describes relationships between physicians and their patients that are respectful and compassionate. It is reflected in attitudes and behaviors that are sensitive to the values, autonomy, and cultural and ethnic backgrounds of others.
