This paper draws on ongoing work into student learning in higher education to consider a basis for conceptualising students' experiences of understanding in medicine. Starting with a modest overview of research on the nature of students' experiences of understanding the paper goes on to consider research on students' personal understandings in terms of knowledge objects. Linking on to research on students' epistemological beliefs the paper forges connections to recent research on threshold concepts and related research on conceptual change. Against the background of this brief overview the paper surveys the research on medical education, and then draws on interview data, currently being collected in a Swedish research project to offer a preliminary conceptualisation of students' experiences of understanding in medicine.
