This presentation will discuss some of the common obstacles and offer examples of successful approaches to integrating ethics into the curricula of medical, nursing, and health professions students.

From 2005-2010 George Agich (http://personal.bgsu.edu/~agichg/) was director of the BGeXperience Program (University Values Program) at Bowling Green State University. In the BGeXperience Program faculty recruited from all colleges are trained to incorporate critical thinking about values into their courses and are supported by the Program with continuing education. All first-year students (3500 students annually) are required to take a 'critical thinking about values' course in their first semester and upper division courses are offered in selected departments and colleges.

The Program was cited as an exemplary model for future liberal education in the College Learning for the New Global Century (2007), a report of the Liberal Education and America's Promise (LEAP) National Leadership Council of the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AACU). The Program has been recognized by USNews & World Report's Annual America's Best Colleges for the past 5 years in Programs to Look For and in the First Year Programs categories, and Bowling Green State University was ranked among top national universities that have a focus on quality undergraduate teaching in the 2010 and 2011 Edition.

George Agich started his career at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine (SIU-SM) as Director of the Medical Ethics Program. A hallmark of that program is the integration of ethics education for medical students in the clinical years. When Howard Barrows, MD, one of the gurus of the use of simulated patients and problem-based learning, came to SIU-SM as Associate Dean for Medical Education, the Medical Ethics Program was one of the first to adopt these methodologies.

At the Cleveland Clinic, George's department was responsible for the coordination of ethics education for 46 residency programs.
