Identification of Scientific Researches Conducted during UNIPLAC’S Medical Degree, Lages, Santa Catarina, Brazil


Scientific Research held during graduation provides students with better training, by allowing the improvement of activities related to their future profession, a better relationship between teachers and students, as well as enabling the knowledge of research methodology. The purpose of this work is to identify the Scientific Research conducted during the medical degree at Universidade do Planalto Catarinense-UNIPLAC, since the implementation of this course at the University (2004) until July 2013. Through a descriptive and quantitative approach, the data related to the scientific research conducted during the medical degree were held. Fifty-eight Scientific Researches were performed by students, who were instructed by qualified teachers. From this information, the fields of knowledge covered by the Scientific Projects were recognized, as well as the profile of researchers. The epidemiology was the field related to the greatest approach and it covered twenty-eight Scientific Researches. Females predominate among the researchers, with a participation of thirty-one exhibitioners and fifteen advisors. The researches were carried out mainly by students who study the early years of medical degree. The tripod Research, Education and Extension are very important as they introduce the students to the scientific universe during graduation, encourage them to produce knowledge and technology through their own researches after the degree, contribute to a better academic background, and provide a continuous update during the professional life, and encourage self-taught professionals.
