LAIRD PEREZ, Rebeca M.; MERINO CAJIDE, Ruth; BELLO FERNANDEZ, Zunilda and SERRANO BARRERA, Orlando. System of conceptual nuclei related to the Biological Agents subject in the medical career. Educ Med Super [online]. 2008, vol.22, n.2, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0864-2141.
AIM: to propose a conceptual nuclei system to be approached in the teaching-educative process of the Biological Agents subject in the medical career. METHODS: a pedagogical research was conducted in "Dr. Zoilo E. Marinello Vidaurreta" Faculty in Las Tunas province during november-december, 2005. Modeling was used to determine the constituents of the system. RESULTS: the concepts were defined by a systemic approach. They were identified as invariants to pathogeny, direct diagnosis and prevention. The interrelationships among them and other concepts of the system were determined and explained. CONCLUSIONS: the systemic analysis of the concepts pathogeny, direct diagnosis and prevention as invariants of the knowledge system, allows the fulfillment of the formative goals of the Biological Agents subject in the medical career.
