Living in modern times with the help of the technology advance, the next generation of health professionals have become increasingly dehumanized, focusing mostly on a biologicist and technical education, during their graduation period. Scientific knowledge in this period has considerably developed biological and mathematic related disciplines in a manner that human science was put aside with a secondary role, turning that into a less meaningful subject of the undergraduates in the health field.The following project is linked to the Research Project "The Pathologies of Modernity and Remedies of the Humanities: Research and experimentation", number 2010/50448-0 FAPESP, and proposes to discuss and understand the extent to which the dehumanization can be seen in the undergraduate environment and at the same time, how the experience of the Human Science can be presented as a "medicine" or way of humanizing this journey.Based on the experience provided by the graduation course "Humanities and Humanizing: Essential Questions of Human Existence by Stories," presented by Professor and Researcher Dante Marcello Claramonte Gallian, is expected to investigate and evaluate the role of the Literature and the Humanities as means of effective humanizing process at graduation.In order to achieve the proposed work, the research will based on the aid of written reports of participating students as well as interviews and observing reports from other researchers involved.
