We contribute to and advance the intellectual and clinical practice foundations of our professions: • We educate students, scholars, and health professionals by (a) incorporating current evidence and evidence-based clinical practice into curricula; and (b) guiding and mentoring learners to participate in and conduct scholarly activity. • We engage in scholarly inquiry to advance education, health, and healthcare, and we disseminate new knowledge in forms that are appropriate to target audiences.
