Professional Education in the United States: Experiential Learning, Issues, and Prospects


Believing that the primary purpose of professional education is to prepare practitioners, the authors consider variables that affect professional practice. Emphasis is on the key role and techniques of experiential education for effective transfer of learning to practice in medicine, law, social work, and management. Other variables that impact cost and quality of services include cost and length of professional education; specialization, selection, and promotion of faculty; role of research; use of paraprofessionals; and assessment of professioal education.
