GOMEZ-GARCIA, M. Teresa; GONZALEZ-MIRASOL, Esteban; LOBO-ABASCAL, Paloma  and  GONZALEZ-MERLO, Gaspar. Evaluation by tutors from the training of postgraduates in medicine from the University of Castilla-La Mancha. FEM (Ed. impresa) [online]. 2013, vol.16, n.1, pp.13-21. ISSN 2014-9840.

Introduction: The university community must question whether the end product, the graduate, has the skills necessary to face the labor market when they leave the classroom. Our objective is to examine the assessments of the professional skills of postgraduate students from the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM) made by their specialized training supervisor. Subjects and methods: We conducted a cross-sectional study of 67 supervisor (a total of 89, 73 and excludes answer 6) of postgraduates of the Faculty of Medicine (UCLM), who helped answering the 'evaluation form', with 32 items about four basic areas of clinical competence (medical knowledge, data-gathering skills, clinical judgment and professional attitudes) The results are shown in percentages. Non-parametric measurements have been made for the statistical association. Results: 53% of the supervisor (35/63, 4 invalid responses) believe that the education of our graduates is higher than the others graduates coming from other universities. Over 30% talk about an exceptional performance in terms of knowledge, data collection, diagnosis and professional attitudes. Considering the resident as a manager of health resources, about 6.3% are below than the others graduates coming from other universities. Conclusions: According to their tutors, the training received by our students seems to be appropriated, which enables them to practice a correct professional task. However, deficiencies are evident on the management of healthcare resources, psychosocial problems and preventive medicine.
