Project Details


The CRESCO seedbed was created in 2015. E 2018 the line of work on Health Research Methodology is created, whose objective is to train the members in research skills. The creation of this line of work has generated new learning and training spaces in line with the institutional model of learning to learn where students are the protagonists and managers of their own knowledge. The pedagogical model used is the Flipped Classroom (FC), where students generate research questions in public health or clinical research from their experiences in community and clinical practices and rotations, and then, with the experience of teachers, facilitates and enhances other processes of knowledge generation.

During the year 2018, quality products presented in events were generated; one local and one Latin American, achieving the collaboration of the thematic expert in palliative care of the Cochrane Collaboration, evidencing the importance of the presence in these spaces. In the last year, the number of students participating in the seedbed has increased, achieving acceptance and presentation of papers in two national academic events with four papers and an additional paper in the 2019 Cochrane Colloquium, an event of global relevance.
