Medicine – Araranguá Campus

07/05/2018 13:04

The Araranguá Campus’ Medicine Program was created in July 2017, within the National Policy for Expansion of Medical Schools in Federal Higher Education Institutions (Ordinance no. 15 of 22 July 2013), and is housed by the School of Sciences, Technology and Health.

The program is structured in modules, from the first to the eighth semester, where cognitive, attitudinal and procedural knowledge are developed in an articulate manner. The sequential modules make up the core of the program and are organized in life cycles. They use the Problem-Based Learning (PBL) approach, in which the work done in small groups of students with the supervision of a tutor potentiates the learning and stimulates autonomy in the teaching-learning process.

Along with the sequential modules, Medicine students also develop two other modules: the Communities module and the Abilities and Humanities module, which include essential skills for the profession of medicine, in addition to the use of practice scenarios in the community and in the local and regional health care network. These modules are also developed using active teaching and learning approaches, such as Project-Based Learning, Team-Based Learning and Case-Based Learning.

From the ninth to the twelfth semester, students do a medical internship inside a partner health unit, in the fields of Family and Community Health, Urgency and Emergency, Collective Health, Mental Health, Internal Medicine, Pre and Post-Operative Care, Pediatrics, or Gynecology and Obstetrics.

The students also have the possibility of taking elective courses and carrying out complementary activities to enhance their social and professional formation through curricular, scientific and cultural enrichment.
