BAILLET ESQUIVEL, Laura Eugenia et al. Residents' selfperception of their relationship with their family medicine tutor during the research mentoring process. Rev. Fac. Med. (Méx.) [online]. 2012, vol.55, n.3, pp.35-41. ISSN 2448-4865.

Introduction: During research mentoring process, a relationship between resident and tutor is developed which is of great importance for thesis development. This paper presents the self-perception on positive and negative aspects that residents experienced during their thesis development. Objective: To identify the general characteristics of residents' self-perception in their relationship with family medicine tutor during the research mentoring process. Material and methods: A descriptive, cross sectional, and observational study was performed. Seventy seven residents from Specialization Course in Family Medicine participated in this study. A questionnaire to assess self-perception of the relationship of residents with their tutor during the thesis tutoring process was designed. The questionnaire was part of a 45 item instrument, 15 to evaluate the characteristics of self-perception of their relationship with the Family Medicine tutor during the research mentoring process. The questions were designed on an ordinal scale of six semantic differential-type response choices with values between 1 and 6. Statistical analysis was performed using descriptive and inferential statistics (binomial test and x2). Reliability was determined using Cronbach's alpha coefficient. Results: The average of residents'self-perception assessment in the positive scale (8 items) was 42.81 ± 5.09, Cronbach's alpha reliability coefficient = 0.833. Average in the negative scale (7 items) was 16.70 ± 6523, Cronbach's alpha reliability coefficient = 0.645. Conclusions: Residents perceive themselves with high scores on: interest, punctuality, honesty, commitment, satisfaction, compliance, motivation and ability, they showed low scores on negative attitudes and intolerance during the mentoring process. No clear trend (mean scores) in their self-perception in aspects such as irresponsibility, boredom, frustration and preference for not doing the thesis work and using the time in other activities however was showed. Results lead to analyze construct validity of the elements that formed the theoretical content of the questionnaire used.
