Resumen

VALDES REYES, Bárbara; SANTOS HERNANDEZ, Carmen  y  ALVAREZ LAUZARIQUE, María Esther. Characterization of the public health formation of the undergraduate education professors in the Latin American School of Medicine. Rev Cubana Salud Pública [online]. 2013, vol.39, n.2, pp.373-384. ISSN 0864-3466.

Objective: To characterize the level of knowledge, skills and values referred to the public health in the undergraduate education professors in the Latin American School of Medicine. Methods: An observational, descriptive and cross-sectional study was carried out in the Latin American School of Medicine in the 2010-2011 academic year. The variable "formation in public health of the undergraduate education professors" was represented by dimensions such as knowledge, skills and values in public health. Through instruments devised by the authors and validated by the expert's criteria in terms of comprehension and contents, the information for the characterization and the evaluation of the public health knowledge of the professors was obtained. Results: The public health knowledge was considered as regular, the public health skills were poor but the public health values were regarded as excellent in the teaching staff. The teaching category, the upgrading of knowledge in the public health topics and the public health approach of the curricula were also poor. Conclusions: The lack of appropriate knowledge and skills in public health observed in the undergraduate curricula and in the educators supports the reshaping of strategies to improve this phase of the formation process of the future physician.
