The local chapter of the National Gold Humanism Honor Society is sponsoring its 2nd Annual Thank A Resident Week at the University at Buffalo from Friday, February 15 culminating on February 22, 2019, the date of the National GHHS celebration.

We encourage you to express your genuine thanks and appreciation to residents you are clinically working with between Friday, February 15th through February 22nd.  If you would like to thank a resident you are not currently working with, have worked with in the past, or would like to submit a thank you note anonymously, please use this form. We will forward your comments to respective residency program directors to share with their residents.

This initiative is a great way to show your appreciation for a resident who has been a good teacher, mentor, friend, etc. Any and all positive comments are welcome! Additionally, your appreciation may help to highlight to program directors residents who work humbly and whose efforts to help medical students go unnoticed.

If you use this form, please submit comments by Tuesday, February 19, 2019, so they can be compiled and sent to program directors to share.  Multiple notes may be submitted using the same link.  

Questions: please contact Austin Iovoli.
