Awards

Dr. John Sheffield, professor, was elected to membership in the University of Washington chapter of the Gold Humanism Honor Society. This recognition of Dr. Sheffield’s commitment to humanism in medicine comes from nomination from the MS3 and MS4 student body and subsequent selection by the student members of the UW GHHS chapter.

Students who nominated Dr. Sheffield commented on his deep commitment to teaching, with one citing his “tireless and patient devotion to educating medical students, with emphasis on preserving, enabling or encouraging the priority of common human respect.” Another student described him as “an absolute legend.”

Dr. Sheffield also serves Harborview Medical Center as both the associate chief of medicine and the required medicine clerkship site coordinator.
