The Arnold P. Gold Foundation

Grounded in the vision that healthcare will be dramatically improved by placing the interests, values and dignity of all people at the core of teaching and practice, the Gold Foundation champions humanism in healthcare, which we define as compassionate, collaborative, and scientifically excellent care.

This Gold standard of care embraces all and targets barriers to such care. We empower experts, learners, and leaders to together create systems and cultures that support humanistic care for all. Among our programs are the White Coat Ceremony, emphasizing compassion from the outset of training, and the Gold Humanism Honor Society. The Gold Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in 1988.
