GHHS Solidarity Week 2016
Friday, February 12, 2016
  News/Media Release Chattanooga, TNFebruary 12, 2016   GHHS National Solidarity WeekFebruary 15 - 19, 2016   Typically held on or near Valentine’s Day, the National Solidarity Day for Compassionate Care began in 2011 as a day to encourage medical schools, patient care facilities and other organizations around the country to show their support of the importance of kindness to patients.   The national Gold Humanism Honor Society office established the day to highlight the nation-wide movement promoting provider-patient relationships based on caring, personalization, and mutual respect. Momentum gathered particularly after the Senate passed a resolution in 2013 and 2014 to officially recognize Solidarity Day on the national calendar.   This year the event has been expanded so we celebrate a week of Solidarity for Compassionate Patient Care:  February 15 through 19, 2016.   The UT College of Medicine GHHS Chapter (statewide in Memphis, Knoxville, and Chattanooga) have prepared  video to thank student mentors and patients for teaching students what it means to truly be a healer and give quality compassionate care.  The video should be uploaded for view by Monday.   Chapter Leader, Dr. Mukta Panda, and the UT College of Medicine Chattanooga Transitional Year Residents, including their Coordinator, Joyce Poke, have prepared a poster that will be displayed at Erlanger for the entire Solidarity Week.   Join our GHHS members, medical students, residents, and faculty in celebrating being part of this movement and for highlighting true healing and compassion next week.   The UT College of Medicine Chattanooga is a campus of the statewide University of Tennesse Health Science Center System. The Chattanooga Campus sponsors graduate medical education training to approximately 174 residents and fellows for 2015-2016. There are ten ACGME accredited residency programs (Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, OB/GYN, Orthopaedic Surgery, Pediatrics, Plastic Surgery, Surgery, Transitional Year, and Urology). The Campus also sponsors ten fellowship programs (Cardiovascular Disease, Colon and Rectal Surgery, Emergency Medical Services, Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery, Neuro-Interventional Surgery, Orthopaedic Trauma Surgery, Surgical Critical Care, Transitions to Practice in General Surgery, Ultrasound (through Emergency Medicine), and Vascular Surgery).
