Program in Education in Biosciences and Health

The Stricto sensu Graduate program in Education in Biosciences and Health of the Instituto Oswaldo Cruz (PGEBS/IOC/Fiocruz), created in 2004, offers the modalities of academic master and doctorate degrees. The program is aimed at graduated professionals who act as educators, teachers and professionals in the fields of Education, Health, or Science and Technology services. It is currently accredited with the concept 6 by the Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior (Brazilian Federal Agency for Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education - Capes/MEC).

The program acts in the areas of formal and non-formal  education in Biosciences and Health, through the training of teachers with experience in research, and researchers with high scientific level, independent and innovative, able to formulate, plan, develop and evaluate research projects, new methods and products for Education in Biosciences and Health.

The PGEBS has 30 counselor doctors in its staff and offers 33 subjects in four thematic and interdisciplinary blocks. The two areas of concentration, Formal Education in Biosciences and Health and Non-formal Education in Biosciences and Health, include the following Research Lines: 1. Education and Learning in Biosciences and Health; 2. Social and Human Sciences Applied to Education in Biosciences and Health; 3. Divulgation, Popularization and Scientific Journalism; 4. Science and Art.

The program results from a partnership between the IOC and several employees in the following institutions: Escola Nacional de Saúde Pública Sergio Arouca (ENSP/Fiocruz), Casa de Oswaldo Cruz (COC/Fiocruz), Centro de Pesquisas René Rachou (CPqRR/Fiocruz), Instituto de Comunicação e Informação Científica e Tecnológica em Saúde (Icict/Fiocruz), Instituto de Pesquisa Clínica Evandro Chagas (Ipec/Fiocruz), Escola Politécnica da Saúde Joaquim Venâncio (EPSJV/Fiocruz), Instituto de Física da Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (IF/UFRJ) and Instituto de Biofísica Carlos Chagas Filho da Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (IBCCF/UFRJ).

The Stricto sensu Graduate program in Education in Biosciences and Health of the Instituto Oswaldo Cruz (IOC/Fiocruz) was approved by the Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior (Brazilian Federal Agency for Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education - Capes) in September 2003 and its first classes of master and doctorate students enrolled in March 2004, with a total of 44 at Master and 14 at PhD levels. The program was initially developed with an extensive faculty, with 45 professionals, including permanent and collaborators, having presented a reduction of that number later. Permanent counselors who were 26 at the end of 2009, became 19 along the triennium from 2010 to 2012, which represented a decrease of 30%. This strategy allowed discussions and collective reflections, which led to a better quality of training offered to the students and, consequently, to the development of best works of dissertations and theses, as well as relatively more numerous publications in well-qualified journals. By December 2014, the program has titled 44 doctors and 120 masters, 106 of the academic master course and 14 of professional master.

The tendency is that the program remains limited to that lower number of professors. However, the renewal of the board of professors, through the entry of new professor-doctors in the program can contribute to new pedagogical initiatives and promising solutions to problems in the Area of education, especially those related to basic education. Three new professors were selected during the first quarter of 2013, an initiative that should have a positive impact on the academic production of the next three years. Currently, the program has 30 professors and 67 students.

The program has improved qualitatively as a result of actions directed to the improvement of research projects in progress and the creation of an academic context, focusing on the debate and exchange between teachers and students. Within the actions is the realization of I, II, III, IV and V Graduate Program Meetings in Bioscience and Health Education, respectively, in November 2010, August 2011, December 2012, September 2013 and October 2014 with support from the Programa de Apoio à Pós-graduação (Proap/Capes). The participation of students and professors in these events is moved by the desire of knowing the progress of the research conducted in the PGEBS and by the interest in listening to the criticism of their own works.

The PGEBS has begun in 2012 to participate in the Support Program for Doctors Training in the Amazon through the Program of Cooperation of the Doctorate in Science, Technology and Education and the Capes/Fiocruz/ covenant of Brasil sem Miséria (BSM) Plan, that aim respectively at the nucleation of new programs and the transmission of knowledge in underserved areas.
