The Leonard Tow Humanism in Medicine Awards
This program annually supports cash awards to a graduating medical student and a faculty member from more than 80 participating medical schools. Our goal is to ultimately make such awards at all medical schools in the United States. The awards recognize those individuals at each school who best demonstrate clinical excellence and the Gold Foundation’s ideals of outstanding compassion in the delivery of care and respect for patients, their families and healthcare colleagues. The Gold Foundation initiated the Humanism in Medicine Awards in 1991 at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons.
