Gold Humanism Honor Society, Jeanette Pullen Chapter


The Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS), a program of the Arnold P. Gold Foundation, was established to recognize medical students, residents and faculty who are exemplars of humanistic patient care and who can serve as role models, mentors and leaders in medicine.

Since the society's inception, GHHS has grown in stature and influence to become a vital part of medical school and residency training program cultures throughout the United States. The society currently has more than 25,000 members in training and practice.


Each year at the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC), about 25 students are selected for induction into the GHHS for demonstrating excellence in patient care, compassion and dedication to service. The Jeanette Pullen Chapter is very active on campus and hosts two important events each year:

  • White Coat Ceremony for entering first-year medical students;
  • Student Clinician Ceremony for rising M3 students before the start of their clinical rotations.

GHHS also has the privilege of promoting humanism through activities and events for the School of Medicine and the entire Medical Center campus.
