Objective: to determine whether training in Primary Care (PC) during pediatric residency in the Autonomous Community of Madrid (ACM) follows the recommendations established in the Ministerial Order SCO 3148/2006: mandatory rotation with a minimum length of 3 months, being advisable to distribute it in two periods (R1-R2 and R3-R4).
Material and methods: a survey by telephone or e-mail was carried out and answered by a pediatric resident and supervised by an attending physician, tutor of residents. All ACM hospitals with accredited training in this speciality were included.
Results: in the ACM there are 19 hospitals with training in Pediatrics, and in all of them the rotation in PC is mandatory. In 58% (11/19) of them the rotation lasts for three months, being shorter in the rest. In 42% (8/19) of the cases, the rotation is divided into two periods, but only in 4 centers as recommended by the Ministerial Order.
Conclusions: only in one out of five hospitals in the ACM is PC training organized according to the Ministerial Order.
