          Abstract

          La profesión médica se construyó con una gran valoración social y se convirtió en baluarte de la constitución de la sociedad industrial. La teoría sociológica ha atendido el proceso histórico de la profesión médica y entre sus perspectivas destaca aquella que alude al declive de las profesiones; desde ella nos preguntamos si hay en la actualidad un proceso de desprofesionalización del médico. Para responder a esta pregunta usamos como referente a un tipo de médico que labora en los famosos consultorios de las Farmacias Similares. Esta modalidad constituye una estrategia empresarial exitosa, que tiene presencia nacional y se expande hacia otros países de América Latina. En su seno, sin embargo, los médicos laboran en condiciones precarias que están encubiertas por la ideología empresarial de ayuda a los pobres. Esta dualidad es un síntoma relevante para hablar de desprofesionalización del médico de las Farmacias Similares.

          Translated abstract

          The medical profession was built with great social valuation and became a bulwark for industrial society's constitution. Sociological theory has studied the medical profession's historic process and among its perspectives, it points out one that makes reference to the decline of professions. From that stance we inquire if the medical profession is currently undergoing an deprofessionalization process. To answer this question we use as a reference, the doctors working at the famous Farmacias Similares doctor's office. This type of attention is a successful entrepreneur strategy, with national presence and expanding in other Latin American countries. At its core, however, doctors are working in precarious conditions covered up by the entrepreneur ideology of helping the poor. Such a duality is a relevant symptom giving ground to talk of medical deprofessionalization at Farmacias Similares.
