Also determine the number of qualified médical professionals involved in this process, establishing the percentage of admitted in the system and the relationship between the source of information, documentation of the admission system, the records of the admissions process and results of the Graduate School and Continuing Education of the Faculty of Medicine, using descriptive statistic techniques for processing and analysis of data, that show a favorable percentage of applicants from the UMSS Faculty of Medicine in the Médical Residency System ( of 97 eligible candidates, 67 belong to this institution) compared to doctors trained in other public and private universities in the country.
