Organization of the curriculum

The construction of knowledge in an integrated and articulated way in a competence-oriented curriculum requires a rethinking of the pedagogical culture of course focused on the commitment of the teaching group. The collegial work aims at a critical understanding of the reality of health and the formation of the human professional, reflective, active, democratic and committed to social issues. This expanded view of teaching and learning requires a new posture of the teacher with respect to the previous knowledge, needs, and interests and learning rhythms of each student.

For this, it is necessary to work with students the ability to establish relationships between the information they receive and bring and between the knowledge they acquire and reconstruct (SANTOMÉ, 1998).

With a view to coping with situations related to medical training in context, the competency-oriented curriculum of the Itaperuna Medicine course is organized as follows: - Curricular Matrix, composed of 12 modules covering disciplines, Integrative Seminars (SI), PIESC Integration Program School, Service and Community) and internships. In each module described, there is a pedagogical intention in the distribution of the same, according to the level of complexity in which they are; - Flexible Teaching Modules, composed of elective and complementary activities, with the aim of making the student's education more flexible. These different dimensions of the curriculum of the medical course are only separated for purposes of didactic explanation. However, they are articulated in the structuring of the Pedagogical Project. Thus, the curricular organization of the course seeks the integration of the disciplines throughout its completion.
