A way of teaching of Humanitarian International Right (HIR) is presented in the context of the teaching “training for defence” as an adequate way for medical students learning about the importance of ethical principles which must ruled the war conflicts along the word. During the last three years of the medical studies different themes are included in order to achieve these ethical principles by the future medical workers. A method for teaching HIR is proposed here. This method is characterized by the students training in their professional behaviour during war conflicts and in the protection of medical personnel.

Keywords : Humanitarian International Right; training for defence; war conflict; ethical principles.
