Methods: The methodology applied for the analysis was the hermeneutic phenomenology; information was obtained through deep interviews, developed with 15 randomly selected professors, among the seven schools of the Health Faculty.
Results: The results revealed five great aspects: teaching initiation, the teachers´ role, conceptual aspects, factors that facilitate it and factors that difficult it, through which the professors describe what they think, feel and do in relation to the Integral Formation.
