PINEDA CANAR, Carlos Andrés. The educational process of physicians in Colombia as seen from the concept of formation. A hermeneutical study. Iatreia [online]. 2015, vol.28, n.2, pp.181-192. ISSN 0121-0793.

From a qualitative study with historical-hermeneutic approach in which the transition in Colombia from the French anatomical-clinical model to the American biomedical model is discussed, a follow up is done of the concept of formation as related to medical education. Three key periods in the historical development of such concept are presented, namely: The classical Greek paideia and later the birth of universities in the Middle Age; the concept of German Bildung in the XVIII and XIX centuries, and finally, the contemporary times. Reflections are done on the process of medical education in the framework of the tension between formation of the human being and the professional technical training in the current market and globalization environment. Emphasis is on the responsibility in formation of all those involved in the educational process, and not of a few subjects, as usually thought.

Keywords : Education; Higher Education; History of Medicine; Medical Education.
