This paper aims to identify major problems in professional education which appear common to all professions. The 4 categories of problems considered are: establishment of an identity and purpose, organization of instruction, relations with other units within the institution, and relations with external agencies. It then discusses, through an analysis of interviews and documents, how these issues apply to the practice of professional education at The Pennsylvania State University. The final section translates the concepts of the literature and the analysis into implications for the larger society. (JS)
