Introduction: educational environment is the set of conditions and feelings, which are experienced and perceived by students in a determined institutional context.
Objective: To evaluate the educational environment in the residents of the hospital "Carlos Manuel de Céspedes".
Methods: an evaluative investigation was carried out for which the PHEEM (Postgraduate Hospital Educational Environment Measure) was used a specific instrument to evaluate the educational environment of the residents in the hospital context.
Results: the survey was applied to 120 (58.25 %) residents of the center of 206 in total; belonging to both genders. The 20 chairs of the hospital were represented. The overall average was 2.5333, indicating an educational environment with significant limitations. Cronbach's alpha coefficient of 0.888 and an alpha of standardized items of 0.889, demonstrates reliability of the applied instrument.
Conclusion: the application of the survey was very useful in the diagnosis of the educational environment of the residents of the hospital, proving that there are important limitations, it would be necessary an investigation to compare with other hospitals in the province and the country.

Key words: social perception, education medica , graduate, working environment.
