OLIVEIRA, Rosely Cerqueira de e GONCALVES, Aguinaldo. Assessment of 2nd Course of Public Health, Secretariat of Brasilia: a case study. Rev. Inst. Med. trop. S. Paulo [online]. 1991, vol.33, n.3, pp. 233-239. ISSN 0036-4665. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0036-46651991000300012.
In Brazil, Public Health specialization courses with the characteristics presently adopted by the National School of Public Health, i.e., short duration and great amplitude, are relatively recent, having started approximately fifteen years ago. In Brasilia, nine such courses have been already completed, having, six of them, directive and/or teaching envolvement by the authors. Results on a final assessment of one the courses are herewith presented in order to introduce our experience as a contribution to future analogous iniciatives. The assessment was applied to a random sample of students, teachers and coordinators, with the objective of identifying positive and negative appreciations about methodological, operational, administrative and institutional aspects. Answers were quite variable, with the highest frequencies scored to field work and to the apprehension on admitting graduates to the Health System. Such aspects deserve final differentiated discussion.
