MONTANO LUNA, José Antonio et al. Some factors related ti the academic performance in the final board exam of the Cuban resident physicians in the General Family Medicine. Educ Med Super [online]. 2011, vol.25, n.1, pp.33-48. ISSN 0864-2141.

A research study was conducted in the field of graduate education to characterize some of the factors related to the academic performance of Cuban general family medicine residents in the final board exam, taking into account their self-preparation and the local conditions of the graduate formative process in the Miranda state, Venezuela in the 2005-2006 academic years. To this end, theoretical and empirical methods were used together with the design of an expert-tailored interview and survey. The survey was administered to the 28 Cuban residents who attended the board exam in that period in order to find out the marks in the exam, their self-preparation, the consulted literature and the organization and structuring of the teaching-learning process. The identified factors were poor self-preparation of the residents, not enough time to prepare themselves for the exam, lacking literature, and lack of interconsultations and clinical rotations in hospitals. The experts associated the poor preparation of the residents for the exam with lacking literature, the work overload and the social setting conditions, and according to their criteria, these elements restricted the time spent in preparing for the exam.
