Teaching, Research and Training


We contribute to the practical training of the future of medicine in Spain.

The Hospital Universitario La Zarzuela is accredited as a teaching centre by the Ministry of Health and Consumption, for the training of specialist doctors, and it provides this training to resident medical interns specialising in gynaecology and obstetrics as well as paediatrics. The resident medical intern places we offer enjoy increasing recognition, as demonstrated by the fact that each year they climb the preference list of medicine graduates.

This accreditation certifies the excellent quality of the medical services we offer. Thanks to our human and technical team, we have obtained the accreditation for teaching which very few private hospitals boast.

The annual training objectives are planned and established on an annual basis and presented in a tailor-made Individual Training Plan. Additionally, all residents have a common Cross Training Plan, which encompasses the common competences with the other residents.

The t Teaching Committee of the Hospital Universitario Sanitas La Zarzuela and the Hospital Universitario Sanitas La Moraleja has been formed pursuant to current legislation in order to guarantee a high level of training programmes of all healthcare professionals who develop their specialism programmes in Sanitas hospitals. The Teaching Committee is the body responsible for managing the matters relating to Specialist Training in our hospital, and it meets at least quarterly.


The continuous assessment will be completed by the mentors and the heads of the unit in which the specialist in training has spent time in rotation. The assessment will be reflected on a sheet that, once completed, will be sent to the Teaching Committee to be kept in the teaching file of the interested party. They are the so-called mentor-resident interviews and are completed quarterly. 



Dear resident, If you are interested in learning about our hospitals for completing your residency, we would be delighted to you our facilities so that you can find out about the teaching units and meet the professionals from the department, your future mentor and residency colleagues, and to be able to explain our programmes and help clarify your doubts.
