This article critically analyzes the article "Informal Learning in Postgraduate Medical Education: From Cognitivism to Culturism." Currently a lot of postgraduate medical education takes place in the workplace on an apprenticeship model. Increasingly, the government is seeking to change the curriculum to be more "fit for purpose," concentrating on competency based learning: this makes it subject to an inexorable managerialism and fragmentation. This ignores the importance of socio-cultural development, and focuses more on the formal learning. This is important in transforming the new kid to the old timer.
