An interest in external factors affecting our field brought together the authors—a group of experienced clinical educators in speech-language pathology from Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States. External influences such as pressures for cost containment in the United States are discussed in reports like Educating Future Professionals: Challenges and Solutions for Academics from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (Goldsmith, Fagan, & Battle, 1995) . Our report extends this discussion to six different societies around the world; the focus is on the external factors of geography, linguistic and cultural heterogeneity, population issues, and government policies.
