The managerial competences allow the doctor in training to prepare for the insertion in the health system. OBJECTIVE: To identify factors associated with the perception of managerial competencies in doctors graduated from the undergraduate medical programs in Peru who participated in the SERUMS 2018-I process.


Observational, analytical cross-sectional study. The questionnaire "How Dutch medical specialists perceive the competencies and training needs of medical residents in healthcare management" was applied to the doctors applying for SERUMS 2018-I. The prevalence ratio (PR) to measure the degree of association between variables was used.


Of the 289 doctors surveyed, 13.8% reported having undergone previous training that potentially contributes to their performance as a manager. 35.5% were at the low level of the perception of managerial competencies, 74.8% reported having an interest in developing management activities and 97.2% need training in medical management. Sex and previous training that contributes to performance as a manager is significantly associated with the perception of performance of effective managerial functions with a PR = 1.66.


The perception of developing effective managerial functions is associated with sex and previous training.
