A research study was conducted in the field of graduate education to characterize, from the tutors and the management staff perspectives, some factors present in the process of formation of General Family Medicine specialists in Miranda state during the 2005-2006 academic year. To this end, theoretical and empirical research methods were used. A survey and an interview for experts were designed. The surveys for tutors of the 20 Cuban resident physicians who took the board exam included personal data, professional and teaching category and the academic level. The identified factors were lack of adequate teaching category, poor experience as tutor, poor teaching preparation, movement to another community or trips to Cuba for personal reasons, long-distance travels to perform their tasks, involvement in activities not directly related to the graduate education work and absences to the methodological activities of the course.
