Five University of Alabama School of Medicine students completing their clinical education at the College of Community Health Sciences are among the 2018 inductees into the Gold Humanism Honor Society. The students are: Clair Davis, Christopher Johnson, Allison Lazenby, Barrie Schmitt and David Osula.
The College also serves as the Tuscaloosa Regional Campus of the School of Medicine.
The Gold Humanism Honor Society is a signature program of the Arnold P. Gold Foundation and was established to recognize medical students, residents and faculty who practice patient-centered care by modeling the qualities of integrity, excellence, compassion, altruism, respect and empathy.
The five Tuscaloosa Campus students were nominated by their peers. A selection committee then evaluated the nominees’ academic eligibility and assessments by their program directors. About 10 percent to 15 percent of each medical school class is selected for membership. More than 22,000 Gold Humanism Honor Society members train and practice nationally.
