Abstract

Communication about issues related to occupational therapy educational programs has been handicapped by the lack of agreement about program definitions. A conceptual framework for describing educational programs is presented. Present problems in terminology are elucidated through application of this framework. A proposal is put forth for clarifying program terms, definitions, and classification.
