CECCIM, Ricardo Burg  and  FERLA, Alcindo Antônio. Education and health: teaching and citizenship to bridge boundaries. Trab. educ. saúde [online]. 2008, vol.6, n.3, pp.443-456. ISSN 1981-7746.

The article seeks to build, based on a memory of the Brazilian Sanitary Reform and on approximations between the scientific areas of Education and Health, a microperception (matter for thought, learning, and getting to know) about the surfacing of a domain of knowledge designated by Health Education and Teaching. This emerging domain would seem to be largely associated to the invention of Collective Health, in the scientific field of health, and to the invention of Social Control in Health, in the field of political intervention in this sector. The new knowledge domain would be characterized by a singular implication of teaching with citizenship, allowing the bridging of the boundaries between education and health via permanent education in health. The teaching and citizenship themes are problematized with explicit help or not (via its readers) from a few philosophers and contemporaneous thinkers such as Michel Foucault, Michel Serres, Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, Francisco Varela, Humberto Maturana, and Ilya Prigogine.

Keywords : professional education in public health; medical education; reform in health services; continued education.
