A research study was undertaken in "Julio Trigo López" Medical School in Arroyo Naranjo municipality, La Habana province. This paper used qualitative and quantitative research models as expression of the methodological triangulation, the system of empirical and theoretical methods, the statistical procedures with absolute numbers and percentages to summarize the information and tables to present it. The activities connected to the educational and teaching function, which were often either unknown or unfulfilled as systematic tasks by General Family Medicine specialists, were characterized. There was also confirmed the lack of adequate preparation, knowledge and skills to carry out the educational and teaching function in a systematic way. The objectives of our paper were to analyze how the educational and teaching function of the General Family Medicine specialist is performed in Arroyo Naranjo municipality, to characterize the activities related to this function and to identify the factors influencing the fulfilment or non-fulfilment of such a function by the MGI specialist.
