Thirty-two UF College of Medicine students and physicians were inducted into the Chapman Society, the UF chapter of the Gold Humanism Honor Society at its ninth annual banquet, held March 1 at the Paramount Plaza Hotel and Conference Center. The new members of the society, which celebrates compassion and caring in medicine, include 24 medical students, six residents and two faculty members. This year’s Leonard Tow Humanism in Medicine award, recognizing outstanding examples of clinical excellence and humanism, went to faculty member David Feller, M.D., and medical student Paul O’Rourke. Tad Kim, M.D., was named recipient of the 2010 Hugh A. Walters, M.D. Humanitarian Award, which supports surgical education. For more on the Chapman Society induction, click here.
