MOIMAZ, Suzely Adas Saliba et al. Situational analysis of supervised curricular internship in Brazilian Dental Schools: a matter of interpretation. Rev. ABENO [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.4, pp. 19-28. ISSN 1679-5954.

The goal of this study was to verify the offer and insertion of supervised curricular internship in undergraduate dental schools in Brazil. This was a transversal descriptive quantitative study. The number and names of institutions that offer undergraduate courses in dentistry were searched at the Ministry of Education website. Every faculty's website was analyzed, and the following variables were verified: workload, regimen, internship workload, semester in which it is offered and nomenclature. The ones that either had no electronic home pages, or had not graduated any students, or displayed no political pedagogical project and/or the course curriculum via web were left out of the sample. Epi Info 7.0 software was used for data processing and statistical analysis. Out of 249 undergraduate dental schools catalogued in Brazil, it was observed that 241 (96.8%) had active home pages, among which 158 (65.6%) offered curricular internship among their activities. Of the 158 analyzed courses, only 38% responded to the National Curricular Parameters (NCPs), assigning 20% of the workload to internship, and 89.2% were semester-oriented. Regarding nomenclature, 53 variations were observed, the most frequent related to dental specialties. The beginning of the internships was most prevalent in the 5th, 7th and 8th semesters. It can be concluded that curricular internships are comprehended in most faculties, with different workloads and nomenclature; however, this nomenclature may be biased, since several technical dental courses are designated as internship activities.
