The PET-Health/SH of the Federal University of Santa Maria, Rio Grande do Sul State, Brazil, was created to execute emergency surveillance to disaster victims from a Santa Maria nightclub and to conduct a situational analysis of municipal health. Because evaluation is essential for the planning, implementation, and operation of any program, a questionnaire for the assessment of PET-Health/SH was drafted. The questions involved the contribution of the program to the academic development and/or service and facilities and difficulties encountered by the team. Data were qualitatively analyzed using the Collective Subject Discourse Method. The program contributed to an improvement in teaching, research, and extension and enabled life experiences, academic development, and multi-professional contacts. Multi-professional integration and interpersonal communication facilities were highlighted, while theoretical deflection and schedules were the main difficulties.
