Blanca Delgado Galíndez
The teaching of clinical practice should focus and be directed to the training of health servants, making use of technology, scientific advances, simulators and practicums which were implemented to offer medical students a supervised practice in a specialized field with the theoretical foundation previously acquired or simultaneously. These strategies undoubtedly prepare them for the world of work and generate the necessary competencies in a specific field of medical knowledge. Learning includes skills and abilities, aptitudes and attitudes to apply the clinical method that leads to research and information gathering, its summary and interpretation, construction of a diagnosis, and as a result, propose treatment and establish a prognosis.This professional and ideal service model is achieved by mastering common procedures and medical and surgical techniques complemented by a harmonious doctor-patient relationship, a moral a legal responsibility of professional practice and the humanism that should characterize the medical profession.
