Summary: ESME Skills in Action course leader and previous ESME Leadership course leaders provide a chapter for the new Routledge Handbook of the Medical Humanities. Description: Wicked issues arise from the complex dynamical interaction of many contexts, people and objects. Medical education is presented as a wicked issue emerging from complex systems with a continuous flow of people and information. Learning is seen as transformative and relationship-centered. The importance of open boundaries is highlighted as part of the conditions that promote self-organization and emergence in medical education and practice . Embodied cognition is discussed as an alternative to and an extension of contemporary concepts of knowing and learning. Curriculum integration is presented in light of self-similarity in a complex system.
