A group of contents were assessed: those related to the surgical-risk patient, the semester in which the subject is taught, the objectives, the topics, the knowledge and skills systems, the name of the surgical-risk patient and the hours allotted to this topic in each syllabus. Interviews were conducted with the professors, in which the above aspects were considered.
