This paper analyzes the effect of the daily experiences of tutors, preceptors, and students who participated in the Education by Work for Health Program (PET-Health) when using those to create transformations in the higher education micro-political dimension and in health work. Its guiding question was: Is the PET-Health with its daily processes capable of producing effects that extend the education matrix whose main characteristic is the teaching process? Rather than polarizing between yes or no, this paper attempt to discuss the existing stakes in education and healthcare production, the framework of the Brazilian education system, and the reinvention of education processes that adopt much more the unlearning and the potentialities of the different actors involved.
