This is not a troll question. I am genuinely curious, and I couldn't find an answer by googling.

Is there ever any reason, either for physical examination or therapeutic purposes, to have your patient get an erection?

The only example I can think of is collecting semen for analysis or IVF, but the provider isn't present for that.

Yes. Several examples come to mind. There are probably more.

1. Dose titration for penile injection meds for ED -- we do this in the office.
2. Peyronie's surgery -- to make sure it's straight
3. Hypospadias/chordee surgery -- to make sure it's straight

How is an erection induced clinically?

Reasonable question considering it would be possible to take advantage of one's position to do some sketchy stuff just like some other docs have done to women who didn't know what should and should not be part of an exam or therapy.
