Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine – Minnesota Campus inducts Gold Humanism Honor Society members

The Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine – Minnesota Campus chapter of the Gold Humanism Honor Society inducted eight fourth-year students, four residents and four faculty members.

This prestigious national honor society recognizes students, residents and faculty who exemplify the humanistic passion that motivated them to enter medicine in their work with patients and colleagues on the health care team.

Election to the Gold Humanism Honor Society is student-driven. Third-year students are asked to nominate colleagues whom they would trust to care for a member of their own family. The top 15% of those nominated are invited to join. The new inductees select for membership a limited number of residents and faculty whom they admire for the humanistic qualities they have observed during their clerkships.
