REYES MIRANDA, Daniel; TEXIDOR PELLON, Raiza  y  MORENO RIVERO, Yainier. Some considerations about the development of an English lesson in Medical Sciences. Educ Med Super [online]. 2015, vol.29, n.4, pp.863-871. ISSN 0864-2141.

English Teaching as a discipline in the University of Medical Sciences has the aim of training a comprehensive professional with a general and professional communicative competence in this language which allows the graduate to solve the most general and frequent problems in their action field. To achieve this goal, the English teacher must have an adequate pedagogical level and a complete mastering of his/her subject contents. The objective of this paper is to reflect on some aspects that must be taken into consideration during the development of an English class in the University of Medical Sciences. The information was obtained with theoretical methods of analysis and synthesis of bibliographic and documentary reviews on the issue as well as the 30-years-long experience of the authors in this area. In conclusion, the steps and procedures of the English class must have an in-depth study to enrich the whole process since the social demands and standards on the health professionals require that they have a solid qualification in English so as to be able to respond to the needs of the country. To obtain this level, among other aspects, the English classes must be excellent.
