The Arnold P. Gold Foundation Gold Humanism Society inducted 15 third-year College of Medicine students on April 23, 2022, at a ceremony in Saginaw. Students nominated their peers for consideration into the society that focuses on humanistic care.

“The students are chosen based on their compassion, clinical excellence and patient centered care. Their peers recognize their strong communicative and collaborative skills,” said Bernard Noveloso, M.D., CMU assistant professor of family medicine, assistant program director of the CMU Medical Education Partners Family Medicine Program and faculty advisor for CMU’s Gold Humanism Society chapter. “These are the ideals of the Gold Humanism Society and the ideals toward which all physicians should strive.”

Noveloso says the distinction is a positive factor in the fourth year of medical school as students work to match with residency programs of their choice. In addition, the Gold Humanism Society is a lifelong honor providing networking and learning opportunities throughout the inductees’ careers. Only fifteen percent of any College of Medicine third-year class is eligible for membership.

The Gold Humanism Society recognizes students, residents and faculty who are exemplars of compassionate patient care and who serve as role models, mentors and leaders in medicine. With chapters at more than 150 schools, there are more than 27,000 members in training and practice.
