Method: This is a quantitative study, with the subjects of the boarding students of medical school. The source of information used in the study was an instrument of perception Likert.
Results: The results showed that the stage has enabled the development of cognitive skills and some of the technical skills required to care for women during the climacteric. There were limitations on the opportunity to progress to skills such as conducting general physical examinations, gynecological and pap smear; nutrition guidance and risk factors such as alcohol and tobacco, as well as the discussion of the indication of hormone replacement therapy for this phase of the woman. Finally, the integrative-relational dimension proved to be the most critical area of the stage. This dimension is very visible limiting environment for multidisciplinary care for women in climacteric, and the ability to integrate epidemiological data, trends and risks to decision-making.
