Abstract

The present study is a reflection with the aim of contributing to a discussion on the research training of Healthcare professionals, taking two concepts into consideration: Scientific literacy and global health. Both concepts are linked to reflexivity, a necessary skill to the training in research of future Healthcare professionals. Hence, the objective of this study is to propose the development of scientific literacy for education in research for Healthcare professionals, in the context of the challenges of global health. For that purpose, the study questions the training based on teaching the scientific method or qualitative methods, arguing on the risk of making research too technical, while evaluating the contribution of qualitative methods to the training of Healthcare professionals.
