RODRIGUEZ FERNANDEZ, Zenén; RIZO RODRIGUEZ, Raúl Ramón  y  MIRABAL FARINAS, Amparo. The diagnosis discussion as an activity of education at work in higher medical education. Educ Med Super [online]. 2017, vol.31, n.2, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-2902.

The case report and its diagnostic discussion is the paramount form of education at work in the educative teaching and care-related process and for the training of health professionals in the centers of higher medical education during the undergraduate and postgraduate studies. It is based on the application of the scientific method of medical sciences (clinical and epidemiological) and its interrelation with the pedagogical categories and fundamental didactic principles. This type of education at work is one of the most used, because it imposes the need to strengthen the application of the scientific method that supports it. The objective of this review is to identify specific aspects about the development of this teaching assistance activity and to propose some suggestions for its effective development in the teaching learning process that may be useful for health professionals who work in those specialties that practice the method systematically.

Palabras clave : education at work; diagnosis discussion; clinical method; epidemiologic method; pedagogical categories; didactic principles; higher medical education.
