Bahiana holds the VI Journey of Psychology

Meeting discussed academic extension in Psychology training.


After three years in a remote format due to the pandemic, the Psychology Journey resumed its in-person model, celebrating its 6th edition with the theme “Training in Psychology: interface between teaching and extension”, on August 28th, at Campus Cabula. Students, professors and guests filled Auditorium 2 for a meeting that started with the poetry of Psychology student Gabriel Nabuco.

The academic program began with the presentation of the conference “Training in Health and Extension: potentialities and challenges”, given by the dean of Extension of the Bahiana, Prof. Dr. Carolina Pedroza. In her speech, the teacher highlighted the moment of inclusion of extension in the academic curriculum of the Bahiana which, in the case of the Psychology course, corresponds to a total of 450 hours. “Our commitment, as health professionals, is to people in their realities”, pointed out the dean.

The day's program continued with a panel with students graduating from the Psychology course at Bahiana who shared experiences in extension activities. According to the coordinator of the undergraduate course, Prof. Dr. Sylvia Barreto, the trajectory of the Psychology journey has already enabled a series of discussions regarding the professional training of students, having already encompassed teaching and research. “We understand that, within the Teaching, Research and Extension tripod, it was missing to discuss Extension, which culminated with all our institutional movement of extension curricularization, defining this year's theme”, she explained.
