It is annual and every year it focuses on a different type of scientific publication, considering that during 2019 it will be focused on the preparation and publication of: clinical case reports and investigation proyects

Focus area:

Research basics for medical practitioners

Problem statement:

The main problem to be attacked is the lack of knowledge on the part of the undergraduate student for the elaboration of scientific investigations, as well as the implications that the publication of the same ones may have, such as, for example: time lapses, journals or portals who have an interest in such investigations and the requirements that must be met for approval by the aforementioned entities.

Target groups:

Each team will choose the theme to be developed, with the support of their assigned tutor. They will have an estimated time of two months for the writing and after its completion.

PRESENTATION AND EVALUATION you have as objective that the work teams present scientific contribution in a fair exhibition, that will be evaluated by a jury that is inside the exhibition fair

PUBLICATION AND AWARD it is in the preparation of the necessary requirements for publication in a journal

Plans for evaluation:

Second stage: LEVEL 1: exam consisting of two parts: a) Development: the spelling of the participant will be evaluated by writing a short. b) Simple selection: will be structured based on 10 questions of 5 items each with a single correct answer. LEVEL 2: exam through the Edmodo Rating: in scale from 1 to 20. Weighting: 4% / 20% of the second stage. LEVEL 3: exam consisting of: a) Multiple selection. Third Stage: Continuous communication will be established with each of the tutors of the program where will request to them a simple report in which the following will be taken into account variables: 1. Number of communications made between the team and the corresponding tutor 2. Number of corrected observations 3. Delivery time of the corrections. Fourth stage: the grade will be established according to the qualification obtained in the expositional fair of the same. Fifth stage: the grade will be established based on the publication status
