Dr. Mengru “Ruru” Wang, clinical assistant professor (Gerontology and Geriatric Medicine) has been selected as the 2024 nominee from the University of Washington for the Arnold P. Gold Humanism in Medicine Award by UW School of Medicine students.

This is a national teaching award presented by the AAMC Organization of Student Representatives (OSR) to one clinical faculty member from medical schools across the country who exemplifies positive mentoring, student collaboration, and teaching compassionate, patient-centered care.

The goal of the award is to emphasize, reinforce, and enhance the importance of humanistic qualities among medical school students and faculty. The presence of a caring, compassionate, and collaborative learning environment serves as positive reinforcement to prospective physicians of the desirability of such qualities in the doctor-patient relationship.

The recipient of the 2024 Arnold P. Gold Foundation Humanism in Medicine Award will be honored at the AAMC Annual Meeting in November and will be invited to speak to the OSR about the importance of humanism in medicine.
