A descriptive and cross-sectional study was carried out at the Faculty I from the University of Medical Sciences in Santiago de Cuba, in December, 2009 with the purpose of determining what did 60 first year-students of the medicine career know about the local history, particularly about the life and work of Gloria Cuadras de la Cruz, an underground combatant in the territory. Results revealed a prevalence of the instructive function and the necessity to strengthen the educational work related to the historical causes of the current revolutionary reality.
