Professions have a long history of an ethical or public-serving purpose. Professionals, unlike businesses, pledge to protect fellow human beings in vulnerable states (Sullivan, 2005; Pellegrino & Thomasma, 1993). However, one of the criticisms of professions throughout the twentieth century has been the emphasis placed on the internal professional, technical and specialty expertise (Sullivan, 2005), rather than external engagement and purpose in relation to clients and the community.
