Resumen

NAVARRO MACHADO, Víctor  y  HERNANDEZ, Arelys. Critical Considerations on the Internal Medicine Syllabus implemented since 2010 in Undergraduate Medical Degrees. Medisur [online]. 2013, vol.11, n.6, pp.663-676. ISSN 1727-897X.

For the medical university to fulfill its social role, changing conditions of society, medical education and medical practice together with periodic review of their training plans should be considered. This article aims at analyzing the current syllabus (2010) for teaching Internal Medicine in undergraduate medical degrees and justifying the proposed changes. In the context of the medical university of Cienfuegos, the eight aspects that constitute the syllabus were analyzed by document review and key informant interviews. Changes in the objectives, thematic plan, and contents for each topic were proposed; methodological orientations, evaluation system and literature were suggested. A central module for elective time was proposed as well as a new evaluation card for practice activities. Proposed changes respond to transformations in the clinical practice, the development of the educational process and social needs, not only those of Cuba. Academic activities will be properly developed provided that changes contribute to the quality of the educational process and forecasts consider present and future changes in the health- disease process.
