New National Survey Reveals 8 out of 10 Americans Claim Their Doc Needs a Prescription for Better Bedside Manners
Date:4/24/2008

shape the future of American medical practice. Already, more than half of the nation's medical schools have established a chapter.

As he celebrates the 20th anniversary of his eponymous Foundation, Dr. Gold is reminded by the startling results of this survey that his Foundation's work is not yet complete. Although there are talented physicians who provide compassionate patient care, many others still need to realize that competency in medicine is defined by more than just scientific and technical skills. Physicians must care for the person with the disease while tackling the disease itself.

In honor of its 20th anniversary celebration, the Foundation has launched a campaign to raise endowment funds and ensure the perpetuation of Dr. Gold's legacy. The Foundation plans to raise $20 million with a goal of $10 million by 2010.

About the Foundation

Founded in October 1988 and based in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, The Arnold P. Gold Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to keeping the care in healthcare. Currently, students and faculty at 93% of our nation's 154 schools of medicine and osteopathy participate in one or more of the Gold Foundation's educational programs.
