Introduction: Professors are recognized as a fundamental part for the execution of the curriculum and, therefore, as protagonists of educational quality. Objectives: To propose a professional skills model for professors of health programs to identify their training needs and optimize the educational process of students. Materials and methods: Qualitative research in which a review of the literature was made and interviews were applied to medical professionals who worked as professors of a graduate health program. Signing an informed consent was the only inclusion criterion. Triangulation of sources was used to guarantee validity and reliability. Results: Based on the literature review, four axes of analysis were established for the interviews. The group of professors was characterized and all the responses were studied. Then, a skills model was created, which can be extrapolated to any health education program in higher education with similar characteristics to the investigated program. Conclusions: This study shows the urgent need for creating training spaces in pedagogy, didactics and evaluation. In consequence, a model that includes cognitive, methodological, social and personal skills is proposed.
