The medical school has been the target, in recent decades, of _ permanent reflection, changes and transformations, especially regarding the revaluation of the humanization of education and medical practice. Inserting themselves in the midst of these discussions and actions, this paper aims to report the experience of inclusion of humanistic themes in the medical curriculum that has been occurring in the Medical School of Campos/RJ (FMC) since the 1990s and that advancing in this process ___, in 2009 _ and in subsequent years, implemented the Medical Skills course, sub-divided into modules. One is the module Medical Conversations, which proposes a reflection and extension of the discussion about ethical, moral, technical, and emotional skills of the medical practice, essentially relational. The implementation of the methodology required an interdisciplinary effort to work with diverse methods in order to establish a relationship that transcends the traditional model of education. This proposal arises from the concerns of professionals involved in medical education in order to value the human beings involved in everyday medical practice.
