GUTIERREZ MAYDATA, Alfredo; WONG ORFILA, Teresita; PEREZ DE ARMAS, Alina  and  FANJUL LOSADA, Nora. The precedence of the Morpho-physiology contents in the teaching of the physical exam in the Medicine career. Rev EDUMECENTRO [online]. 2012, vol.4, n.2, pp.13-22. ISSN 2077-2874.

The contents related to the physical exam of healthy individuals were previously studied in the subject Introduction to the Clinics in the Medicine career, from the academic year 2008-2009 on, they are studied in the Integral General Medicine discipline, and they were reorganized in a way they coincide with Morpho-physiology, so as to grasp greater clinical- basic ties. The professors from both disciplines embraced the proposal favorably; however, some negative criteria have been expressed by the teachers and the students about the precedence of contents that should exist between both disciplines, in respect to the physical exam in the Integral General Medicine, as well as the difficulties this problem originates. The objective of this work is to design a curricular implementation proposal to favor the disciplinary coordination between the Integral General Medicine and the Morpho-physiology disciplines.

Keywords : interdisciplinary; clinic basic interrelation; human Morphophysiology; medicine career.
