HAMAMOTO FILHO, Pedro Tadao et al. Research by students in medical education: a one-year experience at the academic center for research in Medical education. Rev. bras. educ. med. [online]. 2011, vol.35, n.1, pp.108-113. ISSN 0100-5502.

Research on medical education has expanded in recent years. Students' participation in curriculum change has also increased, with major contributions. Initiation in scientific research has also been widely defended due to its positive impact on professional training. We report on the one-year experience at the Academic Center for Research in Medical Education (NAPEM), which incorporates proposals for student participation in discussions on medical teaching through scientific initiation projects in medical education. Founded in 2008, NAPEM was well-received by the academic community at the Botucatu School of Medicine/São Paulo State University (FMB/UNESP). Its current research projects focus on the evaluation of the course in medicine, student evaluation, factors influencing the search for scientific initiation, Student Leagues, and interdisciplinary approaches. A total of 17 students and ten faculty members are involved. In one year, NAPEM has presented papers at congresses, published an article in an indexed journal, and is certified by the Brazilian National Research Council (CNPq). Its challenges include the need for constant renewal of students and progress in research projects, to keep the latter from becoming self-contained, but rather to serve as a continuum in research, to the extent that new findings are added to the body of knowledge on medical education.
