EYMANN, Alfredo et al. Training students on research, while studying Pediatrics in the School of Medicine. Teaching experience. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2017, vol.115, n.2, pp.200-204. ISSN 0325-0075.

Research is important during university education. The objective was to describe the teaching of an exercise in clinical research and its perception by students. Medical students conducted a research work in groups coordinated by a tutor. We evaluated the importance the students gave to research learning and we assessed the satisfaction of having participated in the activity in a scale from 1 to 10. Eighty-one students developed 14 research exercises, 44.4% reported having received training in research methodology before and 11.1% had participated in some research study. They assigned a score of 8 out of 10 to the importance of research and 9 out of 10 to the satisfaction of having participated in the activity. The aspects of the exercise in clinical research perceived as positive were that it favoured teamwork and helped students to understand how to conduct a research study.
