NORERO V, Colomba. The contradictory requirements of university teaching in Chile. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2007, vol.135, n.10, pp. 1343-1345. ISSN 0034-9887. doi: 10.4067/S0034-98872007001000017.
Chile should become a member of the "society of knowledge". Therefore, undergraduate curricula of university careers should be revised, to offer shorter programs that prepare for a permanent training during the whole professional life. This proposal requires an agile academic team, endowed with the adequate methodological tools, but also a contingent of interested and motivated students with comprehension and expression skills and a study discipline. This article comments on the training deficiences of students that are admitted to Chilean universities and the difficulties of university teachers to compensate this training deficiencies in order to teach their subjects in shorter lapses
