Introduction: Medical faculty plays an important role influencing for undergraduate students to carry out research, but this influence will not be adequate if they have not previously done research. Objective: To describe the characteristics of scientific production in teachers of a medical school in Cusco-Peru. Methodology: An analytical, cross-sectional study was made. All teachers from the Medical School of the National University of Saint Abbot of Cusco were included. Publications were searched in the databases of Scopus, Medline, SciELO, LILACS and LIPECS using combinations of possible scientific names. For the analysis, the crude prevalence ratios (RPc) and their 95% confidence intervals were calculated, p value <0.05 was considered significant. Results: Of the 90 teachers, 57.8% never published in a scientific journal, 10% published in the last 3 years and only 4.4% were published in English. Most articles (43.3%) were published in the journal SITUA, and only 7% of articles were found in SCOPUS. Being coordinator of the course (RPc: 3.33, CI95%: 1.16-11.39, p <0.05) and research teacher (RPc: 3.91, CI95%: 1.26-12.11, p = 0.018) were associated with publishing an original article in the Scielo database. Conclusion: The scientific production of the medical faculty of UNSAAC is low. Being coordinator of a course increased the probability to publish in SciELO and LIPECS.
