Resumen

Introducción: Es indiscutible la importancia de la investigación científica y los beneficios que ofrece no solo para el investigador sino para todo un país. A pesar de esto, Latinoamérica incluyendo Panamá, está muy por debajo en producción científica a nivel mundial. Nuestro personal de salud es el primero en ser llamado a esta cultura de investigación. ¿Por qué no está ocurriendo? Si conocemos el problema podremos ser capaces de establecer posibles soluciones. Objetivo: determinar el interés, participación y limitantes que presentan los médicos residentes de las especialidades clínicas del Complejo Hospitalario Dr. Arnulfo Arias Madrid (CHDrAAM) para realizar investigación científica durante el mes de julio 2020. Metodología: descriptivo de corte transversal. Los datos se obtendrán mediante un formulario con 21 preguntas en línea usando la herramienta Google Forms. Las preguntas de esta encuesta fueron previamente validadas. Se usará el programa Epi Info para su análisis. Resultados: de los participantes un 71.4% están entre los 29 a 32 años y predomina el sexo femenino. Más de dos tercios refiere interés en realizar investigación científica y un 25% no sabe cómo realizarla. A pesar de que muchos han estado involucrados en realización de trabajos de investigación, solo 26.7% lo ha llevado a la publicación. Las principales limitantes son: falta de tiempo, no contar con mentores y no saber cómo realizarlas. Conclusiones: Si existe interés en realizar investigación científica por parte de los médicos residentes, sin embargo, impresiona que tengan que escoger entre su carga laboral y la investigación.


Abstract

Introduction: The importance of scientific research and the benefits it offers not only for the researcher but for an entire country is indisputable. In spite of this, Latin America, including Panama, is far behind in scientific production worldwide. Our health personnel are the first to be called to this research culture. Why is it not happening? If we know the problem we may be able to establish possible solutions. Objective: to determine the interest, participation and limitations presented by resident physicians of the clinical specialties of the Dr. Arnulfo Arias Madrid Hospital Complex (C.H.Dr.A.A.M) to carry out scientific research during the month of July 2020. Methodology: descriptive cross-sectional study. Data will be obtained through an online form with 21 questions using the Google Forms tool. The questions of this survey were previously validated. The Epi Info program will be used for analysis. Results: 71.4% of the participants were between 29 and 32 years of age and were predominantly female. More than two thirds reported interest in doing scientific research and 25% did not know how to do it. Although many have been involved in conducting research, only 26.7% have taken it to publication. The main limiting factors are: lack of time, not having mentors, and not knowing how to conduct them. Conclusions: If there is interest in conducting scientific research on the part of resident physicians, however, it is impressive that they have to choose between their workload and research.
