ABSTRACTInterdisciplinarity in the academic field is a process based on the correlation among several branches that keep their independence but get linked for the fulfilment of priority educational and teaching objectives. This paper dealt with this topic and is mainly aimed at identifying the connections among the several variants of the scientific method as a function of interdisciplinarity, viewed as expression of the philososophic categories of the universal, the general and the particular things in approaching the Health Situation Analysis (HSA). This paper was supported on a qualitative study about the analysis of the curricula of Philosophy and Society, General Family Medicine and Medical Informatics disciplines. It showed the authors´opinions based on a reflection, from the philosophical and educational viewpoints, made on the scientific method and its variants in the curricula of the above-mentioned subjects.
