This article discusses the influence of health sector reforms in New Zealand on the management of occupational therapy clinical education. The impact of the theoretical underpinnings of the health sector reforms are considered and linked to the process that was enacted in costing and purchasing clinical education. Reports and press releases from a number of relevant agencies involved in the changes substantiate the discussion. Finally, the experiences related to the implementation of the model are presented, concluding with an interpretation of how all of these changes have impacted on the organization of occupational therapy clinical education in New Zealand.
