HORTALE, Virginia Alonso et al. THEORETICAL AND METHODOLOGICAL CONCEPTION AND LEARNING FROM EXPERIENCE ON FAMILY HEALTH MASTER PROGRAM. Trab. educ. saúde [online]. 2015, vol.13, suppl.2, pp.11-23. ISSN 1981-7746.

Studies focused on professional training at the graduate level to work for the National Health System are scarce in Brazil. This article aims to report on the experience of building the Professional Master's Degree in Family Health offered by the Northeastern Network of Education in Family Health. It presents the background to this proposal and discusses the theoretical and methodological design that permeated the entire process. Continuing education, significant adult learning, and education concepts are discussed in the context of the creation of the Master's Degree course. It is hoped that this experience can subsidize reflections in other training contexts, knowing that it is an ongoing process and that the issues related to the design of the course and the results attained so far are part of a larger challenge, which is the education of adults.

Keywords : family health strategy; graduate education; competency-based education.
