The study consist of three parts: resident's subjective perception of those aspects most appreciate in their clinical practice; resident's prioritizations of routine ICU's activities, and semi-structured interviews with key informants. Results. According to the resident's opinions, the clinical practice at the beside of patients, and carried out with autonomy and with a good tutoring support are central to their training; nevertheless some central competencies such as research, difficult communication, team work or resource management are undervalued, while others such as patient safety or bioethics are absent from their comments. Conclusions.
