ALVAREZ FONTANET, Jorge Joaquín; NUNEZ GUERRA, Alberto  and  GONZALEZ DIAZ, Yuramis. Evaluation of the impact of the educational process on Morphophysiology VI in primary health care. MEDISAN [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.12, pp.1838-1844. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive, retrospective and cross-sectional study was carried out in 20 medical students from the second year in "Josué País García" University Polyclinic of Santiago de Cuba during 2011-2012, to determine the level of satisfaction perceived in them through a survey (evaluation tool) to evaluate the impact of the educational process on the subject Morphophysiology VI. The results were positive in relation to the performance of the teaching practices and differential attention to students with academic difficulties, but the impact was negative on the indicators: attendance at educational activities, marks 4 and 5 in all subjects, participation in scientific activities, extracredit exams and skills competitions. It was found that the application of evaluation tools after each teaching period is useful to control and compare progress of the educational process and identify existing strengths and weaknesses in this process, so as to act accordingly.

Keywords : evaluation of social impact; educational process; Morphophysiology VI subject; primary health care.
