The objective in this article, the realization of a patent mapping on medical education, especially using simulators, since we know that in the teaching of medicine, the development of technical and motor skills in practice is essential, and historically, this training happens with the use of corpses, small animals and later monitoring procedures. With all the advent of technological innovation, financial, cultural and social changes demanded the emergence of new teaching technologies, and through this study, one of the utilities of the technological mapping of the activity can be confirmed through patent documents, which is to obtain the technological evolution of a given subject, in this case: use of models, including simulators in medical education. The temporal evolution of patent documents referring to medical education peaked from 2009 to 2018, and above all, it can be concluded that the latest technologies are models of simulators and there are indications from the United States in exporting this technology to Brazil. recent. From this mapping, it is possible to subsidize technological innovation strategies and assist in the promotion of policies and legislation aimed at stimulating national entrepreneurship and the generation of business opportunities.
