A study on adolescent health is featured at the 57th Brazilian Congress on Medical Education

The work was developed in the curricular component of the Common Core of the Bahiana.


The experience report on primary care in adolescent health, prepared by students Emanuele Sousa (Medicine), Júlia Batista (Psychology) and Ramon Costa (Psychology), under the guidance of professor Cláudia Santana, was presented and selected as “Highlight Poster " at the 57th Brazilian Congress of Medical Education - COBEM. The event took place from September 29th to October 2nd, in Belém (PA), and had as its central theme the “Transforming Medical Education: commitment and social responsibility”.

The work "Unveiling dreams: a meeting of health students with attention to adolescents" was developed in the Interprofessional Practice in Health curriculum component of the Common Nucleus of Escola Bahiana de Medicina e Saúde Pública. The research was based on the fact that, as there is a limited supply of qualified professionals to work in comprehensive care for adolescent health, it is necessary to encourage and promote the training of students during graduation so that they are able to deal with this public. The study provided academics with a different way of learning in relation to health promotion in communities.

The Featured Poster modality was launched in the 2019 edition of COBEM, with this, the abstracts that obtained the best score by the Evaluation Committee were highlighted throughout September 30th and October 1st, in the poster section, with the fixation of prominent stamps on posters.
