BELDARRAIN CHAPLE, Enrique Ramón. Teaching of the history of medicine in Cuba. Educ Med Super [online]. 2014, vol.28, n.2, pp.216-228. ISSN 0864-2141.

The present research paper was aimed at making a historical tour of the Medical History contents that were taught in the medical school of Havana university, the only one in the country that gave these studies at least during the first phase of their development. These studies began to be given after the reform and secularization of the university in 1842 and were eliminated from the curricula due to the reform implemented by the first US military intervention in Cuba at the beginning of the 20th century. The subject came back to the classrooms for a short period of time (1959-1966). The textbook written and published by Dr Lopez Sanchez, which was used in the last period, was analyzed in detail. Likewise, there was also presented the subject module that is currently taught to the public health specialty residents. The historical-logical method supported on the documentary analysis was followed in this paper.
