Resumen

BARAJAS-OCHOA, Aldo et al. Performance of medical schools in Mexico: Results from the Examen Nacional para Aspirantes a Residencias Médicas. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2019, vol.61, n.4, pp.495-503.  Epub 31-Mar-2020. ISSN 0036-3634.  http://dx.doi.org/10.21149/10042.

Objective:

To assess the performance of medical schools (FEM) by analyzing the results of their applicants in the Examen Nacional para Aspirantes a Residencias Médicas (ENARM).

Materials and methods:

Five performance criteria, two official and three created on purpose, were calculated from the ENARM-2016 and -2017 official databases to assess FEM performance.

Results:

In 2016 and 2017, applicants registered from 112 and 115 FEM, respectively. Depending on the performance criteria, the FEM in the first place obtained 5 to 20 points more than the one placed second, and 23 to 98 points more than the FEM in the last place. Approximately 25% applicants were classified as “knowledge-deficient,” and about 80% of these originated from less than one third of the FEM.

Conclusion:

The ENARM results provide information on the performance of the FEM. Approximately one of every four applicants obtained scores lower than the approval threshold of any specialty.
