On Monday, May 2, third-year medical students were inducted into the Gold Humanism Honor Society.

The society recognizes individuals who are exemplars of humanistic patient care and who can serve as role models, mentors and leaders in medicine.

Inductees were nominated by their classmates and selected by current fourth-year members, along with senior leadership from the college.

“Like most honorary societies, you are not admitted because of what you have done, but because of what you are likely to do,” said Dr. Ronald McGinnis, senior associate dean of student affairs, to the inductees. “You have been nominated to carry the humanistic values of medicine for the rest of your life in medicine.”

The Honor Society was founded in 2002 — with UT’s chapter being established in 2005 — to promote humanistic values and behaviors. Its goal is to bring together like minded individuals to sustain their own humanism and to inspire and nurture humanism in others.
