SANCHEZ-GUZMAN, María Alejandra  and  HAMUI-SUTTON, Alicia. Hospital Life is Unhappy: From Subjective Experience to the Construction of Educational Settings in Clinics. RMIE [online]. 2023, vol.28, n.97, pp.425-445.  Epub June 09, 2023. ISSN 1405-6666.

The objective of this article is to understand how students' subjectivities are interwoven in the interactions generated in clinical learning settings in medical residencies. The case study method has been used-the result of clinical ethnography-along with narratives to document how social actors do what they do. The results indicate that medical training is a complex phenomenon with a unique institutional and cultural framework marked by hierarchical structures and power relations. The described interactions and experiences reveal the preeminence of hostile spaces for learning, meshed in a hidden curriculum with expressions of violence like gossip, sexual harassment, the stigma of mental illness, and institutional omissions.

Keywords : learning; students; medicine; gender violence; mental health; case study.
