Abstract: Objective: To understand the meaning of feedback during virtual education (VE) at a medical School. Materials and Methods: Qualitative research with principles of grounded theory. Semi-structured interviews to professors using VE was built. Faculties were selected by convenience sampling process. Open, axial and selective categorization in three moments –descriptive, analytic and interpretative- was done. Results: 1440 codes were identified and grouped in 44 categories. Four phenomena were emerged: 1) Vision and hearing veiled by VE, 2) A teacher not prepared in a society not prepared for VE, 3) Tension between delivering power to the student or retaining him as a teacher and 4) Feedback, system to recognize us each other. Conclusions: Feedback in medical VE is a complex system of non-trivial machines (teacher-student). It is influenced by negative cultural factors. Its aims are: the learning, to unmask emotions and to recognize the other.
