STRAUSS, Francisco and LETA, Jacqueline. Teaching, research, and health care: a case study. Hist. cienc. saude-Manguinhos [online]. 2009, vol.16, n.4, pp. 1027-1043. ISSN 0104-5970. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-59702009000400011.
The article explores the relations between teaching, research, and health care through an analysis of documents and reports by a group of professors with the Department of Clinical Medicine at the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro's School of Medicine. Findings suggest that the two-hundred year old medical school has a strong tradition in teaching and health care and that although research predated inauguration of the thirty-year-old Clementino Fraga Filho University Hospital, this academic activity has only gradually occupied a larger space within the institution following creation of the hospital, which brought a radical change in clinical research methodology, concomitant with the development of a graduate program and the emergence of clinical epidemiology.
