These qualities include integrity, sound moral reasoning, compassion and empathy toward patients, effective communication skills, the ability to engender trust and confidence among patients, staff, and colleagues, and a deep commitment to humanitarian services.

The Gold Humanism Honor Society is funded by a grant from the Arnold P. Gold Foundation.
