MARQUETTE — Three of the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine Upper Peninsula Campus students have been selected for induction into the Gold Humanism Honor Society.
These students were selected for this honor based on the nominations of their peers for their outstanding performance as a student practicing patient-centered care by modeling the qualities of integrity, excellence, compassion, altruism, respect, and empathy.
“I am very proud of our students for their outstanding qualities in receiving this honorary distinction,” said Community Assistant Dean, Stuart Johnson, DO, in a press release.
“Providing compassionate, empathic care benefits our patients as much as it benefits our student learners.”

The Gold Humanism Honor Society was founded in 2002 and now has over 160 chapters in medical schools and residency programs.
More than 35,000 medical students, physicians and other leaders have been inducted.
