WEILER, Rosa Maria Eid et al. Contribution of Pró-Saúde to a reorientation of Dental education and implementation of the National Curricular Guidelines: case studies. Rev. ABENO [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.2, pp. 39-50. ISSN 1679-5954.

Pro Health (Pró Saúde) is an initiative of the Ministry of Health in association with the Ministry of Education, with broad coverage and capillarity. It was instituted and implemented since 2006, creating a partnership between health courses with the secretariats of Health, involving, in the beginning, the Brazilian health System (SUS) services and, more recently, involving the other services of SUS, at a national level. The objective of the present study was to verify how and with what strategies the curricular changes are being conducted in undergraduate Dentistry courses at Brazilian public universities enrolled in Pro Health. It is a case study methodology. Five undergraduate courses were selected, one in each macro region of the country, and questionnaires of perception were applied to the coordinators or teaching staff representative of each course, and to a group of students, about the changes in the process. The results pointed out that the Pro Health has been a useful instrument to induce shifts in the direction of the implementation of the National Curricular Guidelines (NCR). The extramural stages present great variation in their planning and represent an important tool for the development of the competencies required by the NCR. Regarding the pedagogical approach, traditional practices based on the vertical transmission of knowledge still predominate, and the integration of the disciplines occurs, mainly, in modular seminars and professional disciplines.
