COSTA, Roberta Kaliny de Souza  and  MIRANDA, Francisco Arnoldo Nunes de. Professional qualification in the SUS: opportunity for change in the family health strategy. Trab. educ. saúde [online]. 2008, vol.6, n.3, pp.503-518. ISSN 1981-7746.

This article proposes a reflection on the transformations that have been taking place in professional training in health, using the health sector and education competencies as a reference in the professionals' ordainment in consonance with the construction of the Single Health System and of its policies from the Family Health Strategy perspective. The text focuses on the progress made in the formulation of the health human resource policy in Brazil with regard to the reorganization of the higher education institutions and opportunities for the reorientation of new pedagogic models to develop health professionals who are knowledgeable of the population's social problems and health, becoming capable of intervening in the sector's reorganization. In this regard, it contributes to the discussions in the health human resource area, offering subsidies to a reflection on professional qualification for the Single Health System/Family Health Strategy.

Keywords : qualification; Family Health; Single Health System.
