ALVAREZ SANCHEZ, Jesús Antonio et al. Medical Specialist Training Programme: views of trainers in the Community of Madrid. Analysis and interpretation by focal Groups. Educ. méd. [online]. 2003, vol.6, n.2, pp.44-55. ISSN 1575-1813.

Introduction: Medical specialist training programme (STP) has a great importance in the maintenance of high quality health care delivery in our Country. Programme’s development has converted trainers into the main responsible for the quality of the training programme itself, and the clinical competence of the trainee. Nevertheless, the requirements for such a responsibility have not been yet defined. Evaluation of trainers’ views about STP is linked with their responsibilities, and is placed within the context of the need for a more structural or planned approach to training. Method: This research was conducted in the Community of Madrid, by means of four Focal-group. Trainers were selected from primary care and hospitals where STP occurs. Results: Participants discussed about the academic and medical profile of the tutor, the characteristics of the selection and accreditation process of trainers, and about responsibilities, tasks and recognition of the tutorial.  Conclusions: A discordant between the theoretical and practical values assigned to the teaching staff has been clearly identified. The later was determined by its dependence respect to the clinical practice, the paucity of resources, and the lack of recognition of their role in the teaching establishment. Clearance-cut with objective nomination process, some independence of training in the clinical setting, emphasize the role of the Teaching Commissions, arrange timing to the training program, and the recognition in the professional career were pointed as possible solutions.
