GARCIA-HERNANDEZ, Fernando  y  ARAVENA VERDEJO, Víctor. Anatomy and Clinical Competences in Dentistry: Study Based on Students Appreciation. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2006, vol.24, n.3, pp.443-448. ISSN 0717-9502.

The Anatomy gives to the students concepts on the structure, but mainly a method of study and a nomenclature that will be used in clinical basic subjects. This is the main reason why the discipline is taught in the first years of the careers. The education based on competences emphasizes the product and defines what the student must know when finalizing, independent of how to the professor taught or the learning systems used. The final competences determine what it is had to teach and identify the essential of the superfluous things. It represents the best method to credit the quality of the "manufactured product" by each institution of higher education, the professional who is sent to fulfil his roll in the community. The competences and abilities of the surgeon general dentist will depend on the exigencies that settle down in the public and private sector for their professional performance. The present investigation tries to obtain data of all the students who attend the clinical subjects of dentistry in the University of Antofagasta (n=95). It deals with the appreciation that they have respect to the curricular level of the subject, the continuity of the learning, means of reinforcing, and to verify the factor of forgetfulness of the anatomy by means of a questionnaire of basic questions to make clinical competences. The results of the evaluation demonstrated that no course reached the required minimum of 60%. Most of the students recommend that the subject of General Anatomy stays in the first curricular level and that a subject of Anatomy of Head and Neck in superior courses settles down. In addition, that in each clinical course, an anatomist contributes the required anatomical approach. Stand out the means of reinforcing used and the personal appreciation of the anatomical knowledge that that each student has at the time of initiating clinical courses
