Abstract [English]

The need to include the world of facts, of science, and the world of values, and in particular ethics in university studies related to scientific research, is not clearly visualized in universities, or at least it has not been suitably evaluated and materialized in facts. This article aims to assess this need, promoting the union between the scientific interest that each individual in their training and the need to achieve an understanding of ethical values. The contribution of bioethics in some Latin American countries and the positive change of this inclusion in the academic curriculum will be analyzed. Although there is more and more information and knowledge at hand, the understanding of the whole is increasingly fragile, manipulative, inaccurate, liar and repetitive. Hence the question about what as individuals we want to build and what kind of professionals we intend to train, from an ethical, legal, psychological, sociological and moral approach, that is why the importance of programmatic development of bioethics training modules. In Ecuador it is necessary that the Institutes of Higher Education adapt, promote, include, democratize greater accessibility to training in principles and values, to forge a culture of respect for life that will influence all human scenarios.
