Summary

A qualitative approach to explore critical thinking within the liminal space during conceptual learning of evidence-based practice and biostatistics in UNSW's undergraduate medicine program. I have identified the troublesome and transformational conceptual development domains, and used Vygotskian theories to explore how students use critical thinking to transform and become evidence-based clinical practitioners.
