IGLESIAS IGLESIAS, Modesto Antonio et al. Training of the Physical Education Faculty for Teaching the Subject according to the Professional Model in the Medicine Major. Rev Ciencias Médicas [online]. 2014, vol.18, n.4, pp.653-661. ISSN 1561-3194.

Introduction: in all generations of syllabuses, Physical Education has been decontextualized from the majors; as a tendency, a traditional approach is maintained as based on the teaching of sports and centered on the development of sports and physical skills, on forming values and habits of systematically practicing physical and sports activities as a means to improve health, but which is poorly related with the professional profiles of each graduate. Objective: to design a professional self-improvement program for Physical Education I professors in the Medicine major of Pinar del Río University of Medical Sciences, in order to contribute with the integration of contents taking into account the professional model. Material and method: a pedagogical kind study supported on dialectic-materialist method was carried out, because of its capacity to integrate qualitative and quantitative features, which allowed determining empirical, theoretical and statistical methods. Observation and surveys were included into the first group. Historical-logical, systemic-structural and documentary review into de second group which allowed collecting information about the faculty training regarding the research problem. Results: the faculty has an inadequate didactical preparation when teaching the subject of Physical Education I, regarding integration of contents, which may contribute to the profile of the coming health professional’s profile. We determined the needs overcoming these. Conclusions: from the results obtained, a postgraduate degree or diploma will be proposed to improve the preparation of the Physical Education faculty, being able to link the subject with the profile of the Medicine major graduate.
