SUMMARY: The professors of the Faculty of Medicine of Universidad de La Frontera, Chile, worked in reformulating the profiles of the health careers according to the present needs of the country. In order to do so, new curricula focused their attention on the student, and self-learning modules were prepared. The objective of this work was to evaluate the resource "self-learning module" in Human Anatomy through the opinion of the students. The sample was chosen in a simple random way, and included 100 students of the careers of Nursery, Medical Technology and Physical Therapy. The students answered a survey of opinion in voluntary and anonymous way. The answers were categorized by means of a Likert scale of five possibilities (very low, low, regular, high,very high), and their validity was determined through the value Crombach's alpha. The characteristics categorized as "high" in this study they were: organization, motivation,subjects, utility, quality of the information, and amount of used material. The used time was categorized as "regular", and the difficulty of understanding as "low". The internal consistency of each question was greater or equal to 67%. The self-learning modules in Human Anatomy, when applied to students who attend this subject, angular stone in the forrmation of the professionals of the health, had an excellent role as far as the motivation and integration of the knowledge of this discipline
