New challenges emerge, that is why the continuous transformation of the teaching-learning process in medical studies is necessary, particularly in the specialty of gynecology and obstetrics which has not escaped from the changes carried out on the curricular design. The objective was: to assess the current syllabus of the discipline from the development reached by the professional and the needs created. Observation of lectures taught by the professors of the discipline and interviews to professors and students were considered. A documentary analysis of the syllabus to obtain methodological considerations which allowed making the pertinent transformations in order to fulfill the objectives of the discipline was conducted. Concluding that, the syllabus is not in correspondence with the current development, because it presents limitations regarding teaching-learning processes, centered on the lack of basis and the syndromic approach of the purely obstetric pathologies.
