CABIESES, B. et al. First "Training in Clinical Research Methodologies in Chile" (EMIC-Chile): Psychoeducational foundations. Educ. méd. [online]. 2010, vol.13, n.4, pp.229-238. ISSN 1575-1813.

EMIC-Chile ("Entrenamiento en Metodologías para la Investigación Clínica en Chile") is an academic project developed in Chile during 2008 to train health professionals in clinical research. The purpose of this initiative was to improve the quality of research projects that are submitted to apply for public funding. The aim of this article is to describe the psycho-educative theories that supported this training program, its structure, methods and evaluation. Firstly, the program is described in detail. Secondly, psycho-educative theories are described, with special emphasis of social learning theory and education for adults. Finally, implications of EMIC-Chile are stated, in order to improve future research training experiences in Chile. It is expected that this article enhance other research experts to create and develop new training programs in this field. This should progressively strength clinical research in our country.
