Harvard Macy Institute 2019 Gold Humanism Scholars Programme

Application Deadline: July 20th 2018

The Arnold P. Gold Foundation sponsors partial scholarships of $5,000 for Gold Humanism Scholars at the Harvard Macy Institute (HMI) Program for Educators in the Health Professions.

This highly interactive faculty development program trains participants in innovative methods to teach and assess health professional learners. We select healthcare educators whose work helps develop or evaluate educational projects focused on achieving humanistic patient care that can be replicated across a variety of healthcare delivery settings.

At HMI, Gold Humanism in Medicine Scholars join a community of international educators, and their interest in humanism permeates the educational environment of the Institute and facilitates new collaborative relationships moving forward.

Requirements:

Applicants must be faculty members from an accredited school of medicine, nursing and/or other allied health profession in the U.S. or Canada (not open to trainees). Applicants should be recognized at their institution for their commitment to humanistic health professions education.

The Gold Foundation is most interested in supporting health-profession education projects that cultivate humanism — compassionate, collaborative and scientifically excellent care — and:

  1. Address systems-wide change, e.g. through projects that facilitate effective interpersonal communication skills and professionalism;
  2. Are longitudinal, ideally encompassing more than one year of training;
  3. Integrate specialties and disciplines within healthcare, and between healthcare professions;
  4. Are required (vs. elective);
  5. Contribute to best practices in the education of future caregivers (potential for scalability and/or replicability);
  6. Provide evidence of support by the home institution.

Benefits:

  • The Gold Foundation will provide, through a restricted grant to the applicant’s institution, a scholarship of $5,000 toward tuition at the Harvard Macy Institute’s 2019 Program for Educators. Full tuition to the program is $6,100, and travel/lodging is additional. The applicant will be responsible for securing additional funds to cover the remaining expenses.
