student scientific activity is a fundamental element in the organization of the teaching-learning process.


to describe the results achieved in the student scientific activity at Ciego de Ávila University of Medical Sciences from 2016 to 2020.


a descriptive and cross-sectional observational study was carried out at the University of Medical Sciences of Ciego de Ávila from 2016-2020. Theoretical and empirical methods were used. The constitutive documents of the Student Scientific Group and the scientific programs of the student´s events (provincial and national) and those convened by Scientific Health Societies were consulted, where work carried out by students or with their participation were recorded. The reports containing the winners were also reviewed.


in the period studied, 1,165 works were enrolled in events at the provincial level. In national events, a total of 100 awards were obtained, 23 of them in the national student scientific forum of medical sciences. Three recognitions were awarded by national authorities to three students of the institution for their scientific activity developed and a prize was obtained in the National Annual Health Prize Competition in the newly incorporated student category. The student scientific journal Ciencimed was created.


at Ciego de Ávila University of Medical Sciences important results have been achieved in the joint work between scientific groups and the institution for the development of student scientific activity. However, work should be done to expand the representativeness of each degree.
