SANZ-REIG, J; MAS-MARTINEZ, JJ  y  MARIN-PENA, O. Scientific and research activity and degree of satisfaction of residents of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology in different hospitals of the health network in Spain. Acta ortop. mex [online]. 2021, vol.35, n.1, pp.3-10.  Epub 17-Ene-2022. ISSN 2306-4102.


Healthcare pressure has changed the acquisition of knowledge during residency training. The aim of this study was to analyze the clinical and research training, and level of satisfaction, during orthopedic and traumatology residency in different hospitals of the Spanish National Health Service.

Material and methods:

An online survey was distributed between 06/25/2020 and 07/31/2020. Demographic, institution, clinical and research variables were analyzed. Satisfaction was graded in a scale from 0 to 5.


120 residents answered the survey, having a mean age of 27 years and being 58% male. Distribution of residents by year was 26 R5 (21.7%), 24 R4 (20.0%), 45 R3 (37.5%), 25 R2 (20.9%). Only 37.5% answered that they did not have any clinical activity the next day after medical guard, and 45% answered that they performed clinical activity outside of working hours. A total of 56.7% answered that their orthopedic training program did not include research training. No resident had specific time assigned to research activities. Mean satisfaction value was 2.4 points.


Clinical activity shows aspects incompatible with current legislation. Orthopedic programs need improvements with regard to research training. A significant percentage of residents are unsatisfied with their training.
