The topic of assigned seating likely is one that every allied health educator has considered at some point in time. Despite a great deal of informal discussions about the topic, surprisingly, not a great deal of scholarship has explored the role of assigned seating for students in allied health and medical education. While educators can readily recite reasons not to assign seats, rarely can educators provide reasons for doing so. in truth, however, there are many benefits to be reaped from assigned seating in college and medical school classrooms. Thus, the purpose of this paper is to present 10 reasons why allied health educators should consider assigning seats.
