academic training, research, surgical instrumentation


With great enthusiasm, I see that in your magazine Interamerican Journal of Health Sciences, relevance is given to the learning that the field of scientific research provides to the surgical instrumentation training. Science as human activity, creator of knowledge through observation methodologies and experimentation in order to answer questions objectively and systematically, manifests benefits at a global level with the generation of knowledge, the application of these in the development of innovative technologies and in the decision-making with the purpose of solving individual and collective human problems, among others. Scientific practice requires trained personnel to access reference sources and tools that allow critical, consensual and objective reflection in the execution of all stages in the development of an investigation. This is nothing more than a personnel that has learned to learn by itself to obtain evidence that will be useful, reliable and timely to resolve the research questions. There is where remains the main individual benefit of science.
