GUTIERREZ SIERRA, Manuel  and  LLOSA ISENRICH, María Paola Lucía. The program of the medical career in Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2014, vol.31, n.3, pp.582-587. ISSN 1726-4634.

The authors describe the development of the undergraduate medical curriculum at Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, especially over the last 15 years, when they led the Curriculum Committee. They describe the principles that have guided the curriculum development process up to this day; how the competency outcomes were designed and evolved as well as the main influences on the process; how the teaching, learning and assessment process has evolved; how the student selection and admission has been valued; and how the concept of credit has been linked to the work that students need to learn. Finally, they comment on how faculty and students appreciate the program and on the improvement required in the future.
