Scholarship is the opportunity for advanced learning. The new paradigm of scholarship, in addition to research, assimilates teaching, service, and integration scholarships. Many allied health professional organizations reward a variety of scholarly efforts with continuing professional education units (CPEUs). The Commission on Dietetic Registration implemented a new CPEU category that promotes research at the preclusion of non-research types of scholarship. One of the most important educational benefits of non-research scholarship is opportunities for professional writing that also supports the goal of life-long learning encouraged by adult education theory. Allied health professions will benefit from a discussion of the criteria used to differentiate and evaluate academic and practitioner scholarship.
