ALVAREZ BLANCO, Adolfo S.. Análisis de la situación institucional universitaria y de su ámbito externo: Su aplicación en la Maestría de Educación Médica en un país latinoamericano. Educ Med Super [online]. 2001, vol.15, n.2, pp.159-171. ISSN 0864-2141.

The application of the University management in health module as part of the Master’s degree course in Medical Education, aimed at future educators of the Medicine studies in a university of a Latin American country, led to the carrying out of practical exercises in line with the theoretical framework of the curriculum. This module allows to convey the required knowledge and attain the necessary habits, skills and dexterity for the professional performance, and at the institutional level, to provide the future academic team with working tools that will enable it to take a look at the past, to make assessments at the present time and to gain experience for the future of a university in charge of educating the professionals required for solving the population’s health needs, all this is achieved through the application at the moment of the Situational Analysis of the Strategic Planning of Health Interventions in the context of the managerial theory and the management of human resources. The group of participants did an exercise that included the application, after the identification of the institutional mission, of the Analysis of the Institutional Situation and its external context through the positional application by the subjective, inter-subjective, objective and historical analysis; the determination of the type of prevailing management and the image-objective of quality that are desired; the formulation of the institutional vision and its objectives; and the constitution of the situation-objective. In this way, it is possible to arrive at the identification of the institutional problems and of its external context, as a first part or a first moment of the programmed exercise. The sequential exposition of the steps followed by the group of participants headed by the future Dean of the Medical School made it possible, through the implementation of an andragogic and strategic process, to establish the guidelines to cope with prospective situations in the working context.
