MyERAS Application to Feature Gold Humanism Honor Society Membership Field

The Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) Advisory Committee recently announced that membership in the Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS) will now be included on the MyERAS application and the Program Director's Workstation as a filterable field, beginning this summer.

GHHS is a signature program of The Arnold P. Gold Foundation which is nationally recognized for promoting compassionate, patient-centered care. In 2002, the foundation launched GHHS to identify students, residents, and faculty who embody the qualities of integrity, excellence, altruism, respect, and empathy and would serve as role models, leaders, and advocates for humanism in medicine.

At the Joint AACOM & AODME 2015 Annual Conference, April 22-25, 2015, please join Lynn White, MD, Director of GHHS, at a poster presentation about what it means to be a member of GHHS, how the sortable indicator for GHHS on the MyERAS application will assist program directors, and why GHHS membership status should be considered a vital part of the resident application review process.
