The approach of the tutoring as a mere transmission of knowledge is inadequate. The resident
is an adult able to learn by him/herself and the most important work of the tutor will
consist of stimulating him, guiding him and fomenting his capacity of self-learning, equipping
him with tools to assess his learning needs and with resources that allow him to acquire the necessary
competencies and knowledge to reach the established objectives. Actually, it consists
of teaching him to learn the base of a continued formation that will have to maintain throughout
all his professional activity. In addition, the tutor would have to be a professional model
and a moral support for the resident. For all, it would be advisable a certain formation in educational
methodology and techniques of ?feedback?, as well as the knowledge of learning needs
assessment tools, equally applicable to the daily practice of the tutor. The learning methods are diverse and include the self-learning, practice learning, problem based learning, lessons, seminaries,
group works, etc. Important aspects at practical level are: to decide and to plan for
the rotation contents that, respecting basic knowledge, adapt to the necessities of each resident;
to maintain with him constructive and empathic communication and ?feedback?; to drive
him from the first moment in the basic aspects of the daily work; to provide him a progressive
assumption of responsibilities and to look for time for teaching.
