Research stories are like the One Thousand and One Night's Fairytales - they represent a blend of genres such as historical tales, anecdotes, love stories, tragedies, comedies, crime and horror fiction, etc.

A key similarity of research stories and One Thousand and One Night's Fairytales is their 'cliffhangers' - i.e. each story ending with new research questions - leaving the audience with a wish for more and hence a reluctance of executing the storyteller.

Drawing upon some of the contemporary topics in medical education this presentation will tell some stories about how research contribute to questioning our intuitive assumptions, building theories and is of help in finding out why and how what works for whom. Finally, the presentation will include some reflections on future perspectives related to the field of medical education research.
