Gerència Territorial de la Catalunya Central. CAMFIC Rural Working Group Degree of satisfaction of the 4th year Catalan Family Medicine trainees Methods Descriptive study conducted by completing a questionnaire via web. Google Drive platform was used both to do the survey as to analyse the responses statistically. Two e-mail invitations were sent to all 4th year FMT in Catalonia using the offices of the Training centres. Research and analysis of data took place during the first quarter of 2014. Response rate: 30.7%. •53.6% and 31.9% of the respondents stated that they were satisfied or very satisfied with the rural rotation. •When asked about their usefulness, 44.9% and 37.7% respectively said they agree or fully agree with the statement that this rotation is essential for their training as family doctors. •30.4% and 49.3% of respondents also claim that all or most of their prior expectations were completed. Conclusions •Despite a low response rate, according to the results of our study, we can confirm that Catalan FMT have a high degree of satisfaction with their rural rotation. •They see it as a very necessary step in order to complete their training as Family Doctors. •Their prior expectations about this training period were fulfilled to a high degree. Since 2005 “rural rotation” is a compulsory training period in Spain for all Family Medicine Trainees (FMT). In the initial stages of its implementation some doubts about its suitability and utility for young family doctors emerged. The aim of this study is to know the degree of satisfaction, utility and fulfilment of previous expectations in Catalan FMT in their 4th year of training after completing the rural rotation.
