SANCHEZ PORTELA, Carlos A et al. Teaching in General Surgery: a proposal for its training. Rev Ciencias Médicas [online]. 2007, vol.11, n.3, pp. 308-316. ISSN 1561-3194.
The typical methodology for the curricular design for the training of the health human resources is based on the historical-cultural approach, bearing in mind the learning based on the social development in every specific historical-social stage. In Cuba, Higher Education goes on according to the development of the contemporary science. This unquestionably causes the entering into the third millennium to be directed to a high scientific-technical qualification of the professionals, that means that the curricula have a high scientific level and respond to the needs of the society. The methodology itself deals with the health problems and the ways of professional performance, this being the supreme objective. In spite of the above mentioned, the fact of an accelerated scientific-technical development in sciences, and that is the case in General Surgery, makes us face the dilemma that the supreme objectives are not so essential, being overcome by the contents, that is to say, they are not the principal category which leads to new designs, this being the case we are discussing.
