DAMIANI CAVERO, Julieta Sonia et al. Design and validation of an instrument to assess the special functions in 6th year medical students. Educ Med Super [online]. 2015, vol.29, n.1, pp.57-71. ISSN 0864-2141.

With the objective of validating research instruments for the evaluation of the curriculum effectiveness in terms of the special functions of the general physician (preparation for defense and disaster medicine), two theoretical exercises were designed and applied to a sample of 6th year students, both Cubans and foreigners, from a medical school, who answered a survey about this topic. The professors acted as a counterpart in implementing the said exercises and gave their final assessment in an interview. The results obtained by the students in answering the instruments, those related to the opinion of students and professors about their use and finally their application were all processed. The final results show that the suggested instruments are adequate to assess the knowledge about the special functions of the general physicians and can be recommended for the assessment of the functions for which they were designed.

Palabras clave : preparation for defense; disaster medicine; special functions of the general physician.
