In this edition, seven guests were selected, last year there was only one and this is already a differential, as it shows that the event has reached a larger scale. We focus on the area of health services, the expertise of Bahiana, and also to invite our partners and professionals in the field of people management in healthcare services. In addition, this invitation was extended to several of our former students, not only those who have a curriculum linked to it, but those who exercise similar functions.

The participation of the research group of Bahiana, focused on psychosocial studies in the work area, was also very relevant.”
