This document contains descriptions of 19 teaching programs which share the common goal of emphasizing human values as an important area of education in the health professions. This listing is the result and expansion of the Institute on Health and Human Values Conference. Three broad areas are outlined which the 19 schools emphasize in their programs: paramedical education; medical ethics; and social science and humanities relationships. The listings are alphabetical by state, and most include a rationale for a values orientation, goals and objectives, resources, and course descriptions. Problems of some of the courses are also listed. (Author/JR)
