HERNANDEZ RODRIGUEZ, Ileana María  y  DIAZ DOMINGUEZ, Teresa de la Caridad. Trends and manifestations of the process of a humanistic instruction in Medical Science University, Pinar del Rio. Rev Ciencias Médicas [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.2, pp.98-117. ISSN 1561-3194.

Introduction: the process of a humanistic instruction constitutes an essential tool to the achievement of high levels in the most important aspects of the student's personality and to accomplish an educational policy; which target is the comprehensive development of the individuals to their interaction in society. Objective: to identify the main manifestations of the regularities of a humanistic instruction process in medical studies at the Medical Science University in Pinar del Rio province. Material and method: a study supported on the dialectic-materialistic method because of its capacity of integrating qualitative and quantitative methods and even to determine a system of methods, thus theoretical, empiric and statistics methods were used as the first ones; historical-logical, systemic-structural and documentary revision. In the second group interviews, surveys and observation methods were followed. Results: no correspondence and interrelation between professional and social acting modes was found. The contents of a humanistic instruction were not observed from its transversal points of view as invariants of knowledge in the disciplines and/or subjects. Skills and value judgements to interpret the social context and their preparation to transform the health context showed not sufficient integration of knowledge. Conclusions: at the Medical Science University in Pinar del Rio, the process of a humanistic instruction in Medical Studies shows insufficiencies in its implementation, it is not systemic; it is not contextualized and not a sequential follow up of actions responding to the interpretation of a socio-humanistic and ethical context to develop the professional practice was observed as well.
