Higher education institutions face the challenge of implementing educational proposals that lead the students to satisfactory development for quality training. Moreover, public policies highlight the need for changes in healthcare professionals' training regarding the population's needs. This article describes the creation of the pedagogical project for the occupational therapy course at the Federal University of São Carlos. Reflective education was proposed, thereby leading students to interact with knowledge in an independent, flexible and creative way. This is an integrated, interdisciplinary and competence-oriented curriculum. Its professional practice is based on abilities focused on dealing with situations in different contexts. The pedagogical conceptualization was based on the socioconstructivism theory. Active teaching and learning methodologies such as problem-based learning and problem-setting are used.

Keywords : Occupational Therapy; Curriculum; Competences; Teaching-learning methodology.
