SANTANDER MONTES, Arturo Juan et al. Characterization of the academic performance of medical curriculum “d” students. RCIM [online]. 2019, vol.11, n.1, pp.63-74.  Epub June 01, 2019. ISSN 1684-1859.


To characterize the academic performance of first year medical curriculum “D” students at “10 de Octubre“ and “Salvador Allende” Medical Schools (Havana Medical University).


A cross-sectional correlational study was carried out from the evaluations obtained by the students of the plan “D” in both faculties during the academic year 2016-2017.


Four main components were detected in the set of evaluative variables of the first year of the degree: Basic Biomedical Sciences, Complementary Disciplines, Physical Education and English Language.


The obtained results corroborate that the Basic Biomedical Sciences constitute for the students of Medical Sciences the main teaching difficulty in the achievement of the objectives proposed by the new curriculum.

Keywords : Medical curriculum “D”; academic performance; Basic Biomedical Sciences.
