Kim Griswold MD, MPH, has been named the primary clinician and
medical director of the Western New York Center for Survivors of
Refugee Trauma and Torture, an interdisciplinary program addressing
the complex needs of an estimated 15,000 survivors.
The School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences welcomed
bestselling author Abraham Verghese, MD, to Buffalo for his talks
about medical humanism, a key focus for University at Buffalo
medical students, trainees and faculty.
University at Buffalo graduate clinical trainees can
simultaneously complete their residency or fellowship along with a
new, specialized Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree
— the first dual program of its kind in New York State and
one of only a few in the nation.
Forty-three outstanding medical students, residents, fellows and
faculty members have been inducted into the University at
Buffalo’s Richard Sarkin Medical Emeritus Faculty Chapter of
the Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS).
Through innovative curricula and programs developed by the
University at Buffalo’s Center for Medical Humanities,
medical students will have opportunities to explore issues related
to humanism, an approach to care that emphasizes compassionate,
empathic doctor-patient relationships.
