NOZAR, Fernanda et al. Descentralization strategies in the teaching-learning scenario of gynecotocology postgraduates. Experience in the Gynecotocology Clinic A. Rev. Méd. Urug. [online]. 2019, vol.35, n.3, pp.124-139.  Epub Sep 01, 2019. ISSN 0303-3295.

The Gynecotocology Clinic A (GCA) of the School of the School of Medicine is committed to the goals set in the health reform in terms of the training of postgraduates, and thus has focused on the decentralization of the educational scenario.

This study presents the decentralization strategy in the training of postgraduate students in gynecotocology of the GCA between 2010 and 2018.

It describes the tools that allow keeping in touch with the posgraduate students and tutors by means of technology that regularly aids grand rounds, tutorial activities, remote clinics, etc. Also, a description of the distribution of achievements by psotgraduates is provided, as well as the achievement of skills in the different Associated Teaching Centers (CEDAs in Spanish).

Upon the assessment of performance of the CEDAs network of CGA, as well as the educational achievements in human resources, a conclusion is drawn as to the feasibility of increasing the number of postgraduates trained in gynecotocology appealing to structured decentralization strategies for the learning scenario.
