MONTEIRO, Daniela Cristina Sensato et al. Educational Experience in Pathology at the UFC Medical School. Rev. bras. educ. med. [online]. 2015, vol.39, n.3, pp.450-455. ISSN 1981-5271.


To reporting on the application of new teaching material composed of a catalog with macroscopic and microscopic images, available in print and digital media, accompanied by slides of collections. This instrument was created by Master’s and Scientific Initiation students, focusing on the undergraduate students’ autonomy in learning Human Pathology.


A questionnaire was developed to be administered to students to assess the results achieved by the new model, which will be available to students whose courses require attending Human Pathology classes at the Federal University of Ceará (UFC) Medical School. The catalog describes the history and evolution of the disease in a patient with systemic tuberculosis, its clinical manifestations, physical and laboratorial tests and autopsy findings, with different aspects of the inflammatory response.


The students who assessed this model were in favor of its implementation as teaching material for Human Pathology classes and its maintenance in laboratories.


Innovation in classes is necessary and this model emerges as supplementary material for the improvement and motivation of practical classes on the proposed theme.
