GUTIERREZ MAYDATA, Alfredo; WONG ORFILA, Teresita; PEREZ DE ARMAS, Alina  and  VILLAR VALDES, Melba. The necessity to continue improving morpho-physiology in the medicine career. Rev EDUMECENTRO [online]. 2012, vol.4, n.3, pp.133-146. ISSN 2077-2874.

During the academic year 2007-2008 was included the Morpho-physiology discipline in the Medicine career in Cuba, where the contents of the basic biomedical sciences were unified taking into account the systemic integration of the human body. This work synthesizes and states some recommendations that appeared as a result of five years of experiences while applying it in the Medicine career of Villa Clara University of Medical Sciences. These recommendations center the attention on the recovering of traditional teaching aids which are in the labs of the basic sciences, the preparation of the teaching staff, either specialists or beginners, among others. They improve the curriculum taking advantages of the strengths and opportunities and lessening the weaknesses in respect to the integrated teaching of the basic sciences.

Keywords : human morpho-physiology; curricular improving; integrated teaching; medical education; basic sciences; medicine career; teaching aids.
