Theoretical methods were applied: analysis-synthesis, induction-deduction and historical-logical; and empiric ones: the interview in questionnaire form, to get the criteria of students, professors and experts. Results: the investigation inquired about three fundamental aspects: the frequent assessment, the quantity of evaluations of the discipline and the criteria on the final evaluation; in all the aspects, students, professors and experts gave positive assessments; even though some students considered that the number of assessments is very high according to the conditions they have for the preparation of specific subjects of the career that are prioritized in their medical formation. Conclusions: the main assessments delivered by the students, professors and experts were obtained, on the investigated aspects in connection with the assessment dimension. The obtained results allowed proposing the necessary recommendations and modifications for the implementation of the program at a national level.
