Abstract

This is a reflection on the process of developing the curriculum for the Professional Master's Degree in Family Health course offered by Northeast Training in Family Health Network. Professors from federal and state educational and research institutions participated in this process. The construction of the curriculum, that took two years to be completed, included the creation of the Curriculum Development Group, which was put in charge of designing the course and training its professors. The steps of this process were discussed with reference to the educational bases that guided the curriculum design, with emphasis on training health professionals in the professional master's degree mode. It is hoped that the dissemination of this innovative experience within the scope of stricto sensu training will contribute to other experiences not only being designed and implemented, but also disclosed.
