The Richard T. Sarkin Emeritus Faculty Chapter of the Gold Humanism Honor Society is sponsoring its 3rd Annual Thank A Resident Week at the University at Buffalo and UB-Affiliated hospitals from Monday, February 24, 2020 culminating on February 28, 2020, the date of the National GHHS celebration.

Last year, highlights included events at all of our UB-Affiliated hospitals, as well as the nationally-recognized thank you/appreciation note project (with more than 600 notes of appreciation submitted on behalf of residents and fellows and shared with their program directors!)

How Can You Thank A Resident?

Please use this form to send a thank you/appreciation note to a resident and/or fellow you have worked with in the past or are currently working with. Comments will be forwarded respective residency program directors to share with their trainees. Participation and identification of yourself by name is voluntary.

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

You may complete this form as many times as you would like to thank multiple trainees. Please limit one resident/fellow per submission (one name per submission).

This online form will be active to accept submissions through February 21, 2020.  

Questions? Contact Syed Adil, MS4 and Gold Humanism Honor Society Member.
