Abstract

This study has as aims to know the influence of physician model transmitted by those who teach and to identify student’s values when they initiate medical school, values transmitted before obtaining the degree and the importance of physician model in this stage. Through a semi structure interview, with previous informed consent, perceptions were collected from a cohort of students with respect to the image they had about physicians when entering medical school and its evolution throughout training. An impact both positive and negative was identified over students by professors. This influence is analyzed and concrete suggestions are made to correct or improve it in each case.
