FARINAS REINOSO, Ana Teresa. Health surveillance teaching. Educ Med Super [online]. 2005, vol.19, n.3, pp.1-1. ISSN 0864-2141.

The way by which the contents of health surveillance were taught at the different curricula aimed at epidemiologists, hygienists, biostaticians, family physicians and Public Health and Primary Care masters in Cuba was described. The documentary research allowed us to observe that in the first stage, the health surveillance was taught in isolated topics in Epidemiology subject. Afterwards, it became an academic subject that emphasized acquisition of theoretical knowledge, and finally it was systematized as a discipline in which the student summarizes "what he/she really knows and the way of doing it" so as to bring that student closer to the realities of surveillance in the National Health Care system

Keywords : surveillance; curricula; graduate course; public health sciences.
