    Abstract

    Health professions education (HPE) is traditionally viewed and approached in rational-linear manner, with a focus on reducing educational problems, dilemma or challenges into simple terms, examining individual parts in isolation, and focusing on the quality of outcomes and the product. The reality is that educational phenomena (such as curriculum change, interprofessional education, chronic disease management teaching, evaluation) are complex issues which are: characterised by incomplete understandings; unpredictable, unordered and constantly changing, and not amenable to neat one-size solutions. So, how do stakeholders in HPE better engage with the complex reality of educational phenomena, and what does complexity science offer?
