An examination of the professional socialisation process is critical in changing the way graduates are trained and how they are supported post graduation. This article summarises key mechanisms to facilitate socialisation from recent socialisation studies undertaken in the fields of medicine, physical therapy nursing, occupational therapy, and certified athletic coaches. The article outlines the design of a survey of undergraduate university property program directors in the Pacific Rim to determine their awareness of professional socialisation and how the development of graduates' professional socialisation is accommodated at orientation and in subsequent years of their program.
