MEJIA, Christian R. et al. Characteristics and training in administration in personnel working in the health sector of the city and periphery of Huancayo-Peru. FEM (Ed. impresa) [online]. 2018, vol.21, n.1, pp.41-46. ISSN 2014-9840.


We tried to determine the characteristics and skills in administration of the personal working in the health sector of the city and periphery of a city in the Peruvian highlands.

Subjects and methods:

Analytical cross-sectional study. 1,002 workers from the various levels were surveyed. He wondered about their training and participation in administrative areas and the perception they had of it.


Of the 1,002 respondents, the majority of men worked in the urban sector (61%). Social security workers (EsSalud) worked more in the urban sector (p < 0.001) and during more years (p = 0.003); those working in the first level of care were more in the rural sector (p < 0.001), those working in a clinic did more in the urban sector (p < 0.001). In all the institutions evaluated, the rank of having an administrative position was between 25.0-43.2%, and there were no statistically significant differences according to the work in the urban/rural area. 55% would apply for an administrative position, 68% would feel prepared to assume an administrative position, and 72% would be willing to participate in a post-graduate course on administrative matters.


There were important differences depending on where they work, and should be taken into account to generate interventions in education and management. A little more than half would apply for an administrative position, and seven out of ten professionals feel prepared to take up an administrative position and would be willing to participate in a post-graduate course on the administrative subject.
