Nowadays, patient safety is an indispensable requisite to be able to understand the infrastructure needed for medical care. The index of fatal accidents due to the lack of care in the application of medical procedures in the hospital environment has been quantified in diverse latitudes, reaching alarming numbers.
Education of students must start with the adaptation of the curricula to include in the subjects, topics to raise in the student a critical awareness of his/her acts and performance in regard to the organization of the obtained knowledge and its application in the daily medical practice.
At the Anáhuac University, the 2010 curricula for the undergraduate medical studies includes preparing students with a semiflexible didactic strategy, based on competences fostering humanism, safety, quality, and the ethical values of knowledge and current diagnostic and therapeutic resources, including in the latter the rational and cost-efficient use of the medical technology.
It is hoped that these changes can achieve a more efficient model to bring awareness to the student on the relevance of safety in the daily medical practice, in all the working spheres.

Key words: Medical education, medical care, patient’s safety, medical ethics, medical curricula, medial practice.
