RIVERA MICHELENA, Natacha María; PERNAS GOMEZ, Marta  and  NOGUEIRA SOTOLONGO, Minerva. A system of skills for the medical major, its relationship with professional performance. An updated review. Educ Med Super [online]. 2017, vol.31, n.1, pp.215-138. ISSN 0864-2141.

This paper has the purpose to support the importance for curricular design of identifying and systemically conceiving a set of skills that may contribute to the professional skills that must characterize the physician demanded by the current society, as well as to provide scientific foundations for the training relevance to precise and derive a system of logical-intellectual skills oriented to guarantee the building of the forthcoming physician's professional skills and ultimately to the achievement of the competences that distinguish this major's working profile. We assessed the competences proposed by the project Tuning Latin America, for the Latin American physician, that led to specifying the skill as one of the constituent elements of these, since its lack of definition hinders the achievement of the previewed competences. This professional's proper skills constitute the practical expression of health care that they will carry out, which should be evidenced in the different training environments directed to this end characterized by a series of unrepeatable conditions of the medical profession, where the achievement will be shown or not by the competences considered for the medical major.

Keywords : skills system; logical-intellectual skills; professional skills; Medicine major syllabus.
