ABREU MARTIN, Liyipsi et al. Limitations of Medical Sciences professors in Sancti Spirítus in the development of educational research. Gac Méd Espirit [online]. 2018, vol.20, n.3, pp.65-77. ISSN 1608-8921.


Medical Sciences are characterized by professional studies related to public health and the disease health process, but they present weaknesses in the training of the medical professional, also in the knowledge and development of their research skills.


To determine the limitations of the Medical Sciences professors in the educational research in the first academic year group of the Medicine career.


A descriptive cross-sectional study was carried out; the population consisted of 30 teachers from the teachers´ academic year group, 3 faculty directors, and the rest, some of the main professors of the subjects. The analysis of documents, the interview with managers, teachers and students, the survey of teachers, and the triangulation of data in the Medicine career during the course 2017-2018 at the Sancti Spíritus University of Medical Sciences were used.


The performance of teacher of medical sciences is conceived from both, the individual and the group in the teaching practice. Recognizing that the scientific research is part of their functions, but they are mainly interested into the subject they teach and the teachers´ academic year group does not encourage them to research about educational problems.
