TICs (Technologies of Information and Communication) are digital technologies for saving, transmitting and receiving information. The society has changed and the University education must be updated due to the presence of computers and other TICs. The ways of studying the digestive system, together with the importance of its anatomical relations, makes it a wide field for the use of TICs. The objective of this study were to evaluate the importance of TICs as a pedagogic tools in teaching the digestive system to University students, and connect it with the social, educational and economic characteristics. A standardized poll was done to 305 university students (year 2007) from the course Anatomy (UBA) and the data was studied with statistic tests. 89,1% finds TICs useful during the digestive system TP., preferring Power Point presentations (68.1%). 78% considered the clinical surgical cases necessary to fixate Knowledge and concentrate during the TPSD. 82% uses the Virtual Museum as a tool for learning and study. The students that don't work showed more adherence to the clinic-surgical cases. Meanwhile, the others chose tools that maximize their study time and fixate knowledge. We saw a correlation (r2=0.72) between the amount of hours worked and the use of tics. Tics are a base for a new background in which the process of teaching and learning will have to develop. It can be seen that there is a need to encourage an "educational-integrative" conception of TICs.
