Introduction: Scientific societies at the undergraduate level contribute to the research training of students. Therefore, the aim of the study is to perform a scientometric analysis of the scientific production of the 27 Scientific Societies of Medical Students (SOCEM) between 2011 and 2020. Methods: A scientometric study of documents in journals indexed in Scopus was performed. A search strategy was developed to identify the scientific production of all SOCEMs with institutional affiliation identifier (AF-ID) in Scopus. Data were extracted using a formula developed with the AF-IDs of each SOCEM and exported to the SciVal tool for analysis. Results: Urrunaga-Pastor was the author with SOCEM affiliation with the highest number of citations: 92. Four of the five authors of the articles with SOCEM affiliation with the highest number of citations were from the San Fernando Scientific Society (SCSF). The journal with the highest number of papers with SOCEM affiliation was Revista Peruana de Medicina Experimental y Salud Pública. Most of the papers were published in third quartile journals. SCSF was the SOCEM with the highest number of papers: 45, while the Scientific Society of Medical Students of the Universidad de San Martin de Porres (SOCIEM-USMP) had the highest number of citations per paper: 3.9. Conclusion: The number of documents with SOCEM affiliation has been increasing, however, the distribution over the quartiles of the journals has not changed. It's necessary for public and private institutions to make joint efforts to establish connections to have a greater impact on publications with SOCEM affiliation.
