“‘Context matters in medical education’ – is often invoked to defend educational innovation and research that might be seen as lacking transferability and generalisability. Yet context itself and how it works is rarely the subject of research and scholarship. Context does matter; distributed medical education, transnational medical programs and the ongoing disruption to traditional models of clinical placements are all opportunities to advance scholarship that is contextualised to place.

Recent thinking by Bates and colleagues have sought to unpack what context means, using selection and CBME as exemplars of contextualisation. This presentation draws upon critical theories of place from different disciplines to question discourses of deficit and standardisation, explore our recent research findings, and invite discussion on how place and context is experienced in learning and teaching medicine.”
