Alexander Green, MD, MPH, associate director of the Disparities Solutions Center, was honored as a 2013 Arnold P. Gold Foundation scholarship recipient. The organization supports doctors who provide compassionate and respectful patient care. Green was recognized for his work on the “hidden curriculum,” a term used to describe the unofficial learning of both good and bad behaviors and attitudes that occur as students are socialized into organized medicine. Specifically, he will conduct a first-of-its-kind study exploring the “hidden curriculum” as it relates to patients with limited English proficiency.
