The Gold Humanism Honor Society recognizes students, residents and faculty who are exemplars of compassionate patient care and who serve as role models, mentors, and leaders in medicine. Members are peer nominated and are the ones that others say they want taking care of their own family. Since its inception in 2002, Gold Humanism Honor Society has grown in influence to become a vital part of medical school and residency training program cultures throughout the US.
James Meyers, better known to his peers as Jim, is someone who deeply connects with others and truly puts his patients first. Many of his peers note that he has nerves of steel. Not just because of his several tours in the Marine Corps. Not because he has some of the steadiest hands they have ever seen. But, because Jim never backs down from a challenge. He has a calming presence, a caring demeanor, and selfless attitude that makes people feel safe with him. Jim has built a trust with his peers due to him always having the right answers and knowing what to do in difficult situation. With that, we would like to acknowledge and congratulate Jim.
