Abstract

A historical account of the 30 years of the medical major of Health Management at Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos is presented. The major was created in 1988 as Comprehensive General Medicine in response to the shortage of management specialists. The name of the major remained until 1994, when it changed to Integral Medicine and Health Management to emphasize its managerial orientation. In 2002, the curricular plan was modified considering the importance of having an exclusive medical specialization in management for the health sector. The specialty is a pioneer in a gradual education in three levels: micro-management, meso-management, and macro-management. The new curricular plan allowed residents the possibility to access better rotations at public and private institutions. Since 2007, the major is labeled Health Management, and its specialists maintain their solid training that enables them to perform in the decision-making, management, administration, and operation processes of the health systems. The vision of the creators of this major is current to this day; Health Management specialists work in the different institutions of the health system, contributing their knowledge and skills, and generating an impact on the health of the Peruvian population.
