Educación en Salud

General Information

An innovative curriculum has been designed to train community health educators. Students enroll in the professional program during their second year in college. For the following three years, they progress through a competency-based curriculum organized in five broad areas, including man and his health, the change process, the educational process, community work, and group work.
The community health educator is seen as a group leader with the ability to motivate people to adopt healthier life-styles. As a professional, he/she has the basic skills needed to diagnose and analyze problems and prepare educational programs suitable for individuals, and for groups. Through education, the health educator encourages the group to solve its health programs through its own efforts, using resources available in the community. He/she works in an interdisciplinary fashion with other members of the health team, exercising leadership by implementing planned programs.
