This paper aims to analyze the actions of social responsibility of the School of Medicine, at the Federal University of Ceará, at Sobral campus, in view of the System of National Assessment of Higher Education (SINAES). We performed a qualitative research from a literature survey and field research, with the theoretical philosophical propositions of Emmanuel Levinas, the ethics of radical alterity. The survey was conducted in the Medical School at the Federal University of Ceará at Sobral campus, using as data collecting instrument the application of semi-structured interviews conducted with the key people in the course. After analyzing the results, we realized that the ongoing investigation develops social activities that offer positive responses to the community around it, but there is still much to be done for the realization of their social responsibility.
