This organization was established at the Wayne State University School of Medicine in 2005. The Gold Humanism Honor Society is an organization of students who recognize the necessity of fostering compassion in the hospital and clinic. Students from the 3rd and 4th year class, as well as residents and attending physicians, are peer nominated and selected based on their demonstration of commitment to humanism in medicine. The organization hosts such events as the Third Year Student Clinician Ceremony to welcome upcoming third years to their clinical rotations, and medical documentary movie nights where we watch and discuss a movie and how an illness affects people’s lives. GHHS volunteers at YouthVille, an afterschool program for young girls where we talk about issues affecting teens such as body image, alcohol awareness, and future career goals and is putting together a journal showcasing poetry, artwork, and essays written by students, residents, and faculty during their medical careers.
