This Chapter was begun at CMSRU in 2016. The GHHS advocates for humanism through activities on campus and has continuing involvement with its membership. Moreover, it helps to establish relationships with practicing physicians. Election of exemplars to the Gold Humanism Honor Society makes a significant statement to medical school faculty, students, and the public that an institution places high value on the interpersonal skills and attitudes that are essential for excellent patient care.
