Abstract

ANGEL-MACIAS, Mauricio Alberto; RUIZ-DIAZ, Paola  and  ROJAS-SOTO, Edgar. Professional skills training proposal for professors of health programs. rev.fac.med. [online]. 2017, vol.65, n.4, pp.595-600. ISSN 0120-0011.  http://dx.doi.org/10.15446/revfacmed.v65n4.58620.

Introduction:

Professors are recognized as a fundamental part for the execution of the curriculum and, therefore, as protagonists of educational quality.

Objectives:

To propose a professional skills model for professors of health programs to identify their training needs and optimize the educational process of students.

Materials and methods:

Qualitative research in which a review of the literature was made and interviews were applied to medical professionals who worked as professors of a graduate health program. Signing an informed consent was the only inclusion criterion. Triangulation of sources was used to guarantee validity and reliability.

Results:

Based on the literature review, four axes of analysis were established for the interviews. The group of professors was characterized and all the responses were studied. Then, a skills model was created, which can be extrapolated to any health education program in higher education with similar characteristics to the investigated program.

Conclusions:

This study shows the urgent need for creating training spaces in pedagogy, didactics and evaluation. In consequence, a model that includes cognitive, methodological, social and personal skills is proposed.

Keywords : Faculty; Health Education; Graduate Education; Professional Competence (MeSH).
