An Update from the Resident Chapter of the Gold Humanism Honor Society 

For three years, the resident chapter of the Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS) has been inspiring and promoting the GHHS tenets, which include integrity, excellence, compassion, altruism, respect and empathy.

The chapter was founded through a grant provided by the GHHS and the support of the Academy of Medical Educators and the Office of Graduate Medical Education. Colorado was one of nine schools to receive this pilot funding nationally.

Residents and fellows are nominated by their peers and subsequently submit an application documenting their commitment to the principles of the GHHS and their suggestions for how to promote these principles locally. To date, 223 residents and fellows have been inducted into the chapter from nearly all programs at the School of Medicine.
