ABSTRACTThe theoretical and methodological bases for the evaluation of the professional competencies of the specialist physician were laid down within the framework of his/her performance in the health care system institutions and units of Cuba. It was underlined that the working and the individual conditions required for good performance must be assessed together with the various competency elements. Additionally, all the functions of this professional at the workplace must be evaluated, taking into account that his/her performance requires previously identifying the evidence of each competency element that makes up each professional competency. For evaluating them, it is necessary to verify their fulfillment according to a previously set pattern or standard. This evaluative process is carried out with the workers being fully aware of it, and takes into account their work performance and the results of work. The different phases of this process as well as the evaluative techniques and procedures that are most used worldwide were explained in this paper. The responsibilities involved in designing and making the evaluation, how to analyze results and how to act in order to certify a work competency were all defined. The set of possible labor decisions to be adopted were pointed out as well as the need of evaluating the impact of the applied strategy in the quality of the rendered health service was substantiated, in order to assure the improvement and spread of this methodology for evaluation of the rest of the health care workers.
