TRAVERSO-YEPEZ, Martha  and  MORAIS, Normanda Araújo de. Ideas and conceptions permeating professional training among UFRN health courses students. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2004, vol.9, n.2, pp.325-333. ISSN 1678-4669.

This paper presents the conceptions of students of Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte health courses about relevant psychosocial aspects related with their training process, such as motives for choosing that course, expectations and professional targets and how the professional-client/patient relationship is conceived. It is believed that the professional training process is a privileged space of study of ideas, values and conceptions permeating the health practices. It is also considered that changes in the actual health practices are possible not only through a structural reformulation of the sector, but also through conceptual and ideological self-evaluation of the way that this future professional conceives his practice. Results point out for a training process that tends to neglect the complexity and multidimensionality of the human life and favor theoretical and technical aspects underrating the human aspects of professional practice.

Keywords : health practices; meaning process; professional training; humanization process.
