    Abstract

    Most allied health curricula are designed to provide broad placement opportunities that cover a range of different client types and service settings, based on the assumption that competency will not transfer across clinical contexts. Yet, the research in this area has not been conducted in work integrated learning/placement situations. There is little research evidence supporting either transfer of knowledge and skills across clinical contexts, or of developmental models of competency. There is also little published information on how students’ progress from novice to competent for independent clinical practice.
