This is a qualitative study, with narrative interviews, interpreted by content analysis. Professors’ setbacks from distinct courses have been organized into two categories: human and structural dimension. Facing the reality of scrapping of many public higher education institutions (IES), the major difficulties were not related to the infrastructure, but rather the ones involving personal relations, in particular, the multiprofessionality, an aspect considered as very important in the health field training because it allows a comprehensive assistance.
