The Hippocrates Society recognizes the important role of our faculty in philanthropy, and acknowledges that their financial support is vital to the success of the hospital. The society honors current and former physicians and scientists of Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital (BWFH) who have made a cumulative philanthropic commitment of $10,000 or more to the hospitals they serve.

Over the course of each year, Hippocrates Society members are recognized in a number of different ways including:

  • Membership pin commensurate with their giving level upon joining the Hippocrates Society
  • Invitation to annual Spring Social event
  • Invitation to annual Humanitarian Award Reception
  • Recognition in annual honor roll publication

The Humanitarian Award

The society gathers annually to thank members for playing a vital role in its success and to present the Humanitarian Award, a distinction presented to a colleague(s) who has taken action beyond their everyday role to enrich the local, national, and/or global community and improve the lives of others. The Humanitarian Award, launched in 2003, has been presented each year to 1-2 physicians who are voted upon and selected by their colleagues.
