Teaching the History of Cuba in Medical Universities responds to a need of the country in order to train health professionals, having not only a high scientific level but also prepared to comprehend the current events to identify with the people. A literature review and a classification of professors of History at the Medical University in Pinar del Rio were the starting points of this study; which allowed the definition of the didactic basis where the teaching of the subject must be supported nowadays, constituting at the same time the theoretical base to be applied in the whole context of the medical training since the historical formation of the medical students is assumed as an essential pillar to the model of health professionals.
