NUNES, Everardo Duarte et al. The field of Collective Health in the courses perspective. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2010, vol.15, n.4, pp.1917-1922. ISSN 1678-4561.

This article discusses the field of Collective Health from the disciplines that structure the curriculum of the Collective Health area postgraduate courses in 2006. From the database of programs, including master's, doctoral and professional masters were classified 1,171 subjects, in what we call disciplinary fields, linking this to the P. Bourdieu's notion of champ (field). Twenty-eight disciplinary fields were described, in three large groups. It was concluded that the field of collective health has a wide range of disciplinary fields, especially the frequency: Epidemiology (16%), Humanities and Social Sciences in Health (7.9%); Curriculum (7.9%); Systems and Health Services (7.4%), Environment and Health (7.2%) Health Policies (6.3%).

Keywords : Collective health; Discipline; Disciplinary field.
