Aims: In 2005 a baseline study was conducted in order to know the curricular plans and syllabi contents of the Faculty of Medicine, Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, related to violence health disorders given to undergraduate students of the 5 Academic Professional Schools (APS), under the hypothesis that this national health problem has not been considered sufficiently and adequately in the curricular plans of the Faculty.

Design: Descriptive, transversal evaluative analysis. Setting: Faculty of Medicine, Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, Lima, Peru. Materials: Curricular plans of the 5 Faculty’s academic professional schools. Interventions: A total of 81 syllabi courses were considered would have contents on themes related to violence.

Main outcome measures: Academic professional schools’ curricular plans contents on violence. Results: This study showed that only 30 out of 81 syllabi (37%) had any content on violence, distributed as follows: Medicine 9/19 (47,3%), Midwifes 9/20 (45%), Nursery 5/12 (41,6%), Medical Technology 6/19 (31,5%) and Nutrition 1/11 (9,1%).
