This report presents the results of research conducted by medical interns of medicine at the Fundación Universitaria de Ciencias de la Salud, whose objective was to determine the impact of the implementation of knowledge representation systems in a virtual learning environment, according to the styles cognitive students obtained in a preparation course for ECAES. In the development of research used a 2 x 4 factorial design of two variables: learning styles versus knowledge representation systems. The subject groups were obtained by applying the test of classifying them according to Kolb learning styles: assimilating, accommodating, diverging and converging. Through the development of tests determined the incidence ECAES with the knowledge representation systems (concept maps, graphs, frames networks and mentefactos). The working hypothesis was to determine whether significant differences in conceptual transfer between subjects according to their learning styles due to knowledge representation systems used in the study of basic skills of medicine. It showed that 53% of students are divergent group (reflective - observation). The knowledge representation systems with which the participating students were more successful mentefactos frameworks and, although results were not significant. The subjects had the highest scores converged in this type of evidence, which is consistent with the Kolb’s theory. Assimilators subjects obtained better results with concept mapping. Components in Public Health and Administrative Actions, students obtained the highest averages with concept maps, further stressed the health of the Elderly, secondly, after the frames.
