Gold Humanism Honor Society

The Gold Humanism Honor Society is a steadfast advocate for humanism and honors medical students, residents, role-model physician teachers and other exemplars recognized for “demonstrated excellence in clinical care, leadership, compassion and dedication to service." Organized to elevate the values of humanism and professionalism within the field of medicine and its constituent institutions, the Gold Humanism Honor Society is fast becoming integrated into the educational environment.

In 2004, the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo established the Richard Sarkin / Medical Emeritus Faculty Chapter of the Gold Humanism Honor Society.
