GARCIA, Maria Alice Amorim et al. The need for interdisciplinarity in medical education. Rev. bras. educ. med. [online]. 2007, vol.31, n.2, pp.147-155. ISSN 1981-5271.

The National Curricular Guidelines consider health an interdisciplinary area seen that its object " the process of human health and disease " involves social relations, biology and emotional expressions. This study aims to analyze the programs and activities of the curriculum implanted at the Medical School of PUC-Campinas since 2001 with respect to interdisciplinary and multiprofessional actions involving other health courses. Documents and personal statements from different participants involved in the course were analyzed. From the point of view of the interviewed persons, in spite of some difficulties related to fragmentation of knowledge and practices, lack of knowledge and prejudice regarding the fields and core areas of the health professions and the precarious employment conditions of the faculty, integration initiatives have taken place, above all the morphophysiological cycles, the clinical correlation and the Family and Community Health practices. We conclude that interdisciplinary is present in the curricular proposal and as an intention of the University, but that it is carried on by individual initiatives, in "meetings" of students, teachers, employees and patients, winning significance and demonstrating a process in construction but still far away from transdisciplinarity.
