ROSALES REYES, Sol Ángel  y  VALVERDE GRANDAL, Orietta. The research training in the profile of Stomatology careers of Latin American universities. Rev Cubana Estomatol [online]. 2008, vol.45, n.3-4. ISSN 0034-7507.

Universities are the vertebral column of the scientific-technological subsystem of each country. That's why, they should stimulate the creative spirit as well as the scientific training of the professionals they educate. It is necessary that the objectives directed to the research training of the students appear in an explicit way in the profile of the stomatology careers not only for the future professionals to contribute to the solution of the oral health problems and to improve the quality of the persons' life, but also because a university research giving concrete solutions to the health problems of social impact is necessary. Starting from the previous premises, a documentary study was carried out aimed at verifying the presence of research training in the Stomatology career of 18 Latin American universities, including the profile of the Stomatology career of Cuba, for which a bibliographic research was made in Internet that allowed the review and analysis of such profiles. As a result, it was observed that of the 18 studied profiles, only in 6 (33.3 %) an objective directed to the research training of the future stomatologists is well-defined, and in 12 (66.6 %) it does not exist. It was concluded that in most of the consulted professional profiles of the Stomatology career, their research training is not included in the graduate profile. The improvement of such curricula with the inclusion of the investigative component and its explicit presence in the professional profile is necessary.
