GONZALEZ VALDES, Maria de los Angeles. The development of research competencies with an environmentalist focus for the Medical Informatics subject. Proposal of topics. RCIM [online]. 2019, vol.11, n.1, pp.104-112.  Epub June 01, 2019. ISSN 1684-1859.

The research component is part of the curriculum of studies in medical universities. The objective of this paper is to propose three topics to be worked on as part of the research component of the Medical Informatics subject. The topics worked were: Information and Communication Technologies, Environment and Ecosystems; and Information and Communications Technologies and Environmental Pollution. The themes were interrelated, although each had its own objectives. The seminar was the organizational form for the exposition and socialization of these topics by the student researchers. The incorporation of these topics contributed to promote the social, collective and individual responsibility of the students; to increase their levels of information and knowledge and to recognize the risk of negative environmental and social impact; as well as allowed them to adopt more sustainable practices of consumption and responsible use of technologies.

Keywords : medical informatics; environmental research; environmental pollution; environmental education.
