Class of 2022 GHHS members


June 28, 2021

Congratulations to the newest Class of 2022 Fort Pierce campus members of the FSU Chapman Chapter of the Gold Humanism Honor Society: Stenia Accilien, Maria Badino, Dominique Catena, Je’Coy Hawley and Nicolas Ott.

The Gold Humanism Honor Society Selection Committee carefully reviewed many nominations.  It was encouraging to see so many students recognized by faculty, classmates and staff from across all four years of the curriculum. These students rose to the top as true exemplars of humanism by receiving multiple nominations from faculty, staff and peers in every category demonstrating clinical excellence, service to others, patient-centered approach to care and compassion.

“Humanism is defined by the link between compassion and scientific competence.  When practiced, humanism in medicine fosters relationships with patients and other caregivers that are compassionate and empathetic.  It describes attitudes and behaviors that are sensitive to the values, autonomy, cultural and ethnic backgrounds of others.  The humanistic doctor demonstrated the following attributes (I.E., C.A.R.E.S)

Integrity: the congruence between expressed values and behavior

Excellence: clinical expertise

Compassion: the awareness and acknowledgement of the suffering of another and the desire to relieve it

Altruism: the capacity to put the needs and interests of another before your own

Respect: the regard for the autonomy and values of another person

Empathy: the ability to put oneself in another’s situation, e.g., physician as patient

Service:  the sharing of one’s talent, time and resources with those in need; giving beyond what is required”
