The aim of this article is to analyze the meanings attributed to curiosity in relation to international mobility among physicians and researchers in the medical field. On the basis of 43 in-depth interviews, we discuss our informants' views on curiosity as well as its relation to mobility practices that affect the professional's choice of career options and place of work - and thus their knowledge, in terms of both learning and production. What is the importance of curiosity when people choose to go abroad for some time in their professional life? How is curiosity narrated as a genre of academic mobility? To entangle these questions, we will in this article problematize curiosity as a motive, pleasurable driving force, ideal and practice weighed against the family and internal professional career requirements, and as a tool for professional distinktion against the non- och less mobile colleagues.
