OBJECTIVE: To assess satisfaction of attendants to a National Meeting on Medical Research in relation with the scientific quality and level of discussion of the research work. MATERIAL AND METHODS: An anonymous self-applied questionnaire was handed out to gather opinions about the scientific quality, level of discussion of the research work, and overall satisfaction with the meeting. The studied population included 400 physicians, all of them authors or collaborators of the research work presented. RESULTS: The rate of response was 62% (n = 249). Two hundred and twenty-four approved the scientific quality (90%), and 203 were satisfied with the level of discussion of research (88%); 239 were satisfied with the meeting as a whole (96%). The factors associated with dissatisfaction regarding the quality of the scientific meeting were the masculine gender (OR = 2.7, CI 95% = 0.8-9.l, p = 0.06), having an M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree (OR = 2.3, CI 95% = 0.9-5.5, p = 0.03), and having attending prior meetings more than twice (OR = 5.0, CI 95% = 1.5-18.4, p = 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Most of the attendants were satisfied with the scientific quality and discussions of the research work. The masculine gender, having an M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree, and prior assistance were the factors associated with dissatisfaction of the scientific quality of the Meeting.
