DAVO-BLANES, Mª Carmen  y  GRUPO DE LA 2ª REUNION DEL FORO DE PROFESORADO UNIVERSITARIO DE SALUD PUBLICA EN EL GRADO DE MEDICINA et al. Public health competencies and contents in Spanish undergraduate medical degrees. Gac Sanit [online]. 2016, vol.30, n.2, pp.97-103. ISSN 0213-9111.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.gaceta.2015.11.006.

Objective: To reach a consensus among public health faculty from various Spanish universities about the core public health competencies that should be integrated into undergraduate medical degrees. Methods: The 2nd Forum of University Teachers was held at the Rey Juan Carlos University (Madrid, 11-12 December 2014). Twenty-four university professors and lecturers from 19 Spanish universities imparting medical degrees participated in the forum. They were distributed in three working groups during three working sessions. In the first session, they were asked to identify and classify core public health competencies for medical degrees. In the second, they were asked to propose public health contents for the identified competencies. In the third session, the participants organized these contents in thematic blocks. The results were discussed in distinct plenary sessions. Results: The highest number of core competencies was identified in the activities related to the public health functions "Assessment of the population's health needs" and "Developing health policies". The final programme included basic contents organised into five units: Concept of health, public health and its determinants; Epidemiology and health research; Determinants and health problems; Strategies, interventions and policies; and health systems, clinical and healthcare management. Conclusions: The public health core competencies and contents identified in this Forum may be considered as a starting point to improve and update public health training programmes for future medical professionals.
