A Integracao de Ensino das Ciencias da Saude (An Integrated Medical Education Program [in Brazil]).
Pourchet-Campos, M. A.; Guimaraes Junior, Paulino
At the Sixth Annual Reunion of the Brazilian Association of Medical Schools (VI Reuniao Anual da Associacao Brasileira de Escolas Medicas) leaders in the Brazilian medical profession proposed an integrated educational program for training students in the fields of medicine and public health. Under Brazil's present system of education, all physicians and medical technicians are trained in separately-operated technical schools. As part of Brazil's reform of its university system, physicians recommend a medical training program similar to the one followed at most U.S. universities where medical schools are part of the system of higher education. In addition, the Brazilian doctors suggest an integrated medical program which would train related specialists and technicians, such as pharmacists, public health, mental health, and sanitation officials. The statement indicates the benefits that could be derived from the suggested plan. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (DS)
