Resumen

DE LA FUENTE, Juan Ramón; MARTUSCELLI, Jaime  y  ALARCON-SEGOVIA, Donato. The Future of Medical Investigation in Mexico. Gac. Méd. Méx [online]. 2004, vol.140, n.5, pp.519-524. ISSN 0016-3813.

The current situation of clinical research in México is analyzed. The main findings are as follows: 10% of total number of researchers in Mexico are engaged in medical research; there is a highly centralized distribution in the Mexico City metropolitan area; there exists unequal academic development among disciplines, and there is an over whelming number of researchers in public educational and health institutions. A substantial increase in medical publications during the last 15 years with reasonable citation impact was also found. Several urgent matters to attend were identified, such as financing problems, effect of health services descentralization completed in 1997, and the need to selectively support certain research areas such as accidents, mental health, addictions, geriatrics and chronic diseases.
