Background: due to its own integrating and introductory character, the Morphology- Physiology I approaches diverse and complex aspects in contents and basic concepts. Objective: to identify the influencing factors in the low ordinary promotion in the above mentioned subject. Methods: it was carried out a descriptive, longitudinal and retrospective study within the qualitative approach, during the academic year 2013-2014, in Villa Clara University of Medical Sciences. Theoretical methods were used: analysis-synthesis and induction-deduction; empiric ones: analysis of documents of the Admission Department, Secretariat of Teaching and Morphology-Physiology Department, and a questionnaire was applied to the students to determine the levels of responsibility, satisfaction with the subject and their appreciation about the teaching activities; and the statistical-mathematical one for the absolute and relative values. Results: the influencing factors in the low ordinary promotion of Morphology-Physiology I were: deficiencies in the methodological-teaching work of the subject teaching staff, professors with little experience, few specialists in biomedical sciences and prevalence of the lower teaching ranks, limitation of material resources, most of the students neither plan nor prioritize the daily study of the subject, they didn't participate in the classes actively , they didn't updated the professor's notes in the independent study and they were neither satisfied nor motivated with the subject. Conclusions: difficulties were identified within the teaching-learning process in Human Morphology-Physiology I, with prevalence of deficiencies in the teaching-methodological staff, and irregularities in the subject teaching staff, and material limitations, as well as the students' dissatisfactions with the teaching and study of the subject.
