In the teaching-learning process of the Medical Computer discipline it is necessary to use teaching methods aimed at the conscious understanding of the different contents and the development of reasoning in the students. The methods of problem teaching are aimed at stimulating and developing the logical processes of thought, so the use of them is required.


Design actions for the use of problem teaching in the teaching-learning process of the Medical Informatics discipline.


A development research was carried out in the Faculty of Medical Sciences of Holguin, from

September to December 2017. Theoretical methods were applied to support the problem. Methods of the theoretical level were used, as well as the analysis of documents from different reports. Within theempirical methods, observation and survey were used.


The essence of the method is exposed: the exposition, the partial search, the heuristicconversation and the investigative method. A set of actions is proposed to use the methods of problem teaching in the teaching-learning process of the Medical Informatics discipline.


In order to achieve adequate forms of reasoning in the solution of health situations, the use of active methods of appropriation of knowledge is required, which allows the student to achieve productive assimilation levels.
