To identify a group of competences characteristic of the family physician's teaching activity, theoretical and empiric methods were utilized. The selected sample was surveyed, an interview to experts was made and a focal group was used. Statistical procedures were applied to anlyze the results and some tables were made.Starting from the characterization of the pedagogical training of the family physicians acting as tutors in the formative settings of primary health care at "Julio Trigo López" Medical Faculty, and of the theoretical references about this topic, an integrating analysis was made to assess the data obtained and the group of basic teaching competences was defined, which may favor a pedagogical management with higher quality at this level. The latest methodological principles about the training of human resources in Medical Education in general, and particularly in Medical Higher Education, were taken into consideration. The results are characterized by their theoretical profoundness and applicability.
