Workplace curriculum design; connecting theory to practice 
An important part of undergraduate medical education and the vast majority of postgraduate medical education is situated in practice. Medical students’ and residents’ learning is influenced by the curriculum they follow, the specific opportunities for learning and guidance provided at their varying workplace(s) and their individual goals and ambitions. How to design workplace learning is a topic that has many practical challenges and is studied from a multitude of perspectives. In this presentation, Pim Teunissen will discuss why we situate learning in the workplace and the importance of different ways of thinking about what we want learners to learn. Based on answers to these fundamental questions, an approach to integrate learning and working will be discussed, linking theory and practice. This presentation will help those attending to focus on what they want to achieve when organizing workplace learning and provide guidance on how to identify areas for improvement in their own workplace learning environments.
