A pioneer in ethics education in medicine will examine the "Two Sides of Professionalism in Medicine" in a lecture Monday at Oregon State University.

The free public lecture will begin at 4 p.m. in Kearney Hall Room 112, 1491 S.W. Campus Way, Corvallis. The event is sponsored by the Hundere Endowment in Religion and Culture.

In his lecture, George J. Agich will argue that it is essential to examine closely the tension that exists between medicine as a profession that is conducted for the benefit of its practitioners, and medicine as a profession that functions primarily to serve the interests of patients.

Agich is a professor of philosophy and senior research fellow at Bowling Green State University, where he directs the BG Experience, a program designed to help students examine their values.
