Abstract

Training in obstetrics and gynecology plays a pivotal role in the development of future specialists and clearly affects the quality of care provided. Despite the importance of the topic, data on the training quality and adequacy are lacking: considering this point, we would like to investigate it with a survey. Learning climate (LC) is an important factor and indicator of training quality, and it is related to symptoms of burnout, career dissatisfaction, and depression. We propose to investigate LC with Dutch Residency Educational Climate Test (D-RECT) that will be submitted to all the Italian trainees in gynecology and obstetrics. In order to assess trainee perceptions about personal competences, personal training level, professional development and overall satisfaction at the end of training, we developed a structured questionnaire of 24 items, the Fifth-Year Training Questionnaire (FYT-Q), that will be submitted with D-RECT only to trainees at the fifth year. The aim is to describe the state of the art in obstetrics and gynecology training in Italy. This could be the first step to allow departments to be made aware of the limitations of their training, to identify areas needing improvement, thus becoming a driver for change and improvement.
