PERERA DUQUE, Clara; RODRIGUEZ PEREZ, Irene; IGLESIAS RAMIREZ, Belén Z. and POMARES BORY, Eduardo de J.. Histology I and Molecular cellular Biology as antecessors of the program of Morph physiology I. Rev haban cienc méd [online]. 2008, vol.7, n.3, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1729-519X.
An analysis of the Programs of the Histology I and Cellular and Molecular Biology subjects of the Curriculum of the career of Medicine in Cuba, is carried out with the purpose of valuing the objectives and contents of both subjects, in order to facilitate the understanding of the modifications to insert it in the new design of the program of Morphophysiology I. For that reason we revised and compared both programs and it was studied, under a theoretical point of view, the coincidences between both programs. Numerous repetitions among the aims and contents were found, in what concerns to the description and analysis of the eukaryotic cell, being evidenced the requirement to make them coincide among the subjects and in that way to avoid superfluous repetitions that would damage the teaching - learning process and with the evident tendencies to the overlapping, to the encyclopedic knowledge and the cloistering of the specialties in the respective departments that leadership the teaching process of these sciences. In this analysis, it was also evidenced that the points of possible coincidences should be approached with those contents in the programs of Embryology subject in the horizontal order and those of Pathological Anatomy and Biological agents subjects in the vertical order, as conducive aspects to the creation of a novel program of Basic Biomedical Sciences that starting from Morphophysiology subject allows to establish the appropriate relationships with the clinic and the primary attention of health.
