Five physicians training in Christiana Care’s graduate medical education programs were inducted into the Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS) and recognized as outstanding role models for compassionate care at the Sidney Kimmel Medical College of the Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. The inductees are John J. Campbell, D.O., Owen Beams, M.D., Erica Heilman, M.D., Amanda Cooper, D.O., and Rachel E. Carter, M.D.
“The recipients of this award are clearly role models for physicians in training as they exemplify compassionate, patient-centered care and strong leadership. We are extremely proud of this honor, and they absolutely deserve it,” said Brian Jay Levine, M.D., FACEP, FAAEM, residency program director in the Department of Emergency Medicine.
The national honor society was established in 2002. More than 20,000 medical students, residents and faculty, have been inducted for exceptional clinical care and compassionate leadership. At Thomas Jefferson University, the GHHS chapter is in its sixth year, though this is the first year that the chapter has inducted residents.
Neil Jasani, M.D., MBA, FACEP, chief academic and learning officer and vice president of Medical Affairs of Christiana Care, assisted with the nominations.
“This award honors our resident physicians who personify all the qualities that we hold near and dear in our clinicians and embodies The Christiana Care Way, where we pledge to serve our neighbors as respectful, expert, caring partners in their health,” Dr. Jasani said.
