INTRODUCTION: the medical course at the Medical School of Marilia (Famema) has an integrated curriculum, organized by competence, in which the evaluation is based on cognitive aspects, skills and attitudes. OBJECTIVE: to identify and analyze the evaluation concept of the teachers at Famema by means of the students' performance evaluation. METHODOLOGY: twelve Professional Practice Evaluation Exercises (PPEE) were filmed and recorded. The discourse analysis used the Interpretation of Meanings Method, based on dialectic-hermeneutic principles. RESULTS: different evaluation concepts in a competence orientated curriculum were identified, the most traditional and the most critical, reflexive and negotiated ones. CONCLUSIONS: the PPEE is a privileged opportunity that allows the reconstruction of the professional practice and the teaching-learning process with special attention given to evaluation.
