Golden Spotlight

The Golden Spotlight is a new program by the GHHS which seeks to highlight campus groups that embody our core values of compassion and humanism in medicine. If selected for the Golden Spotlight, your group will be highlighted by GHHS and publicized to medical students during Introduction to Clinical Medicine (ICM) courses. Included in the Spotlight is:

  • 10 minutes of protected time during an ICM lecture to talk to 1st and 2nd years about who your group is, what you represent, the population you primarily serve, your current projects, and how lower years can help
  • Help advertising, organizing, and staffing, any projects your group has planned for the month you are being highlighted
  • Help bringing in speakers, hosting talks or panels, and recruiting participants for your group
  • A slide of your group's general information and contact information on both the GHHS and ICM PULSE sites for students to review

To be considered for the Golden Service Award, members of the Jefferson community should access the GHHS PULSE site, where you will find the application. Send an email with the completed application to JeffGoldHumanism@gmail.com.

October Golden Spotlight: Jefferson Medical Interpreters

Jefferson Medical Interpreters (JMI) is a student group on campus dedicated to providing foreign-language translating services to Philadelphia's Health Centers. We currently offer interpreting for patients speaking Spanish, French, Mandarin, and Cantonese. One of the major challenges for JMI is the vast spectrum of cultural backgrounds we encounter. There are varying dialects, belief systems, and social norms that we must be keenly aware of in order to provide the best patient care possible. Through a night dedicated to learning cultural competency skills, we hope to provide our interpreters with the ability to not only be better translators, but to also develop into better healthcare providers. In our future careers, in an increasingly multicultural world, it is of utmost importance that we can properly connect with our patients. Through this event, we hope to continue to develop the skills necessary to improve communication with patients.
