Abstract : The education of general practitioners (GP), based on a compentency model, let students able to build the skills needed for their future practice. The aim of this study is to check that competencies that residents gain during their training meet patients expectations. We conducted a cross-sectional study of patients of seventeen GPs, all masters of training course at the university René Descartes. Patients requested had to be adult and able to reply a questionnaire. During three days, each GP gave a questionnaire to the first five eligible patients of his consultation. The questions focused on patients socio-demographic data, characteristics of their doctor, and a list of issues designed to assess the importance that patients placed on each competency required for GPs. The importance attached to each skill has been quantified and analysed. A total of 135 patients have return a completed questionnaire. Our results show that GP competencies are all considered important. Communication with the patient and interprofessionnal relationships were especially enhanced, whereas education and preventive care seemed secondary. The education of GP should improve these aspects of care. Improving the residents basic training and experience should allow them to better fulfill their futur patients expectations.
