This paper considers "lifelong learning" among a group of doctors within the "male" medical profession. It explores their struggle to be effective and reflective practitioners, in a world where subjective knowledge and cultural understanding are often derided, and yet "success" may depend on the integration of medical with cultural and emotional literacy.
