BATISTA, Sylvia Helena da Silva. Interdisciplinarity in medical education. Rev. bras. educ. med. [online]. 2006, vol.30, n.1, pp.39-46. ISSN 1981-5271.

This paper discusses interdisciplinarity in medical education, recognizing that the complaints on the fragmentation in the curricular reformulation processes is more intensive in the undergraduate medicine courses due to the emphasis given to a pedagogic project based on biologicist and specialization concepts. The concept interdisciplinarity was analyzed from multiple viewpoints, based on a conceptual tracking and favoring interlocutions with Morin, Fazenda, Fourez, Pombo e Furlanetto. The construction of directions in medical education based on interdisplinarity includes the implementation of curricular designs allowing to articulate contents, encouraging problem-based approaches and promoting academic activities guided by medical practices anchored in the context of health services, insertion of students and teachers as subjects in the process and production of background knowledge. We delineate challenges and possibilities for the construction of proposals for a curriculum employing interdisciplinary practices for facing the complexity of medical activities such as teaching, learning and health care.
