This paper identifies 10 professional questions that the author has labeled milestone issues in the history of the American Occupational Therapy Association. Subjects encompassed by these issues are medical control, certified occupational therapy assistants, licensure, proficiency testing, entry-level degrees, treatment media, maintenance of competency, whether occupational therapists serve patients or clients, professional autonomy, and the status of occupational therapy as a profession. Although this paper is primarily a factual record of events and discussions referenced in official publications, the reader will recognize the insertion of author commentary and opinion in several of the issues discussed.
