This paper reports on a project exploring the ‘state of the art’ in teaching social science research methods to undergraduate medical students. Drawing on ongoing research involving reviewing the literature and consultation with the 32 UK medical schools, I will describe some of the emerging issues around the content, organisation, delivery and assessment of provision of teaching and learning and propose some early thoughts about opportunities and challenges in developing and supporting the academics and learners in this field. The session will be interactive including opportunities for participants to reflect on, to debate and discuss the extent to which these issues are germane to their practice and experience and my emerging prospectus for social scientists ‘working away from home’ in medical education and indeed in other disciplines.
