Department of Psychiatry residents Camilo Leal, MD and Christopher Ong, MD have been nominated by residents and selected by the committee to receive membership into the Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS).
The mission of the Gold Humanism Honor Society is to recognize individuals who are exemplars of humanistic patient care and who can serve as role models, mentors, and leaders in medicine. Leal and Ong are two of 13 resident/fellows from the University of Florida that have been selected by our UF Resident Chapter of the Gold Humanism Honor Society for 2016. This membership is a national honor, and Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) now allows indication of involvement on par with Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. We would like to congratulate Dr. Leal and Dr. Ong on standing out among their peers as role models of excellence in compassionate medical care. There will be an induction ceremony held Thursday, May 5 in the new Harrell Medical Student Building.
Please join us in congratulating Dr. Leal and Dr. Ong on their outstanding accomplishments.
