Abstract

Objective: The aim is to report the experiences during the practical experiences in the territory assigned to a basic health unit provided by the module of Integral Health Care I.


Methods: Case studies resulting from a process of critical reflections about practical experiences by medical students in a basic health unit from August to December 2015.


Results: Through the module of Integral Health Care I, students were allowed to recognize the assigned area of a family health team, as well as to develop the territorialization process and to classify the demographic, epidemiological, socioeconomic and environmental profile in that place; in addition to perform other activities as a singular therapeutic project and intervention project.


Conclusion: The activities developed motivated the students to be able to apply the concepts of family and community medicine in primary health care, in addition to bringing them closer to the reality of this work process.


Descriptors: Integral Health Care; Family Health Strategy; Physician-Patient Relationship; Basic Health Unit.
