Abstract
Objective

To analyze the profile of residency candidates choosing the specialty of diagnostic radiology in function of variables related to the positions available in different years.

Materials and methods

We compiled the data published on the Spanish Ministry of Health's website during the acts celebrated to allow residency candidates to choose positions based on the results of the competitive examinations held from 2006 to 2015, comparing the specialty of diagnostic radiology with the other specialties available in terms of positions available, net questions, sex, nationality, and order of choice of the position.

Results

The specialty of diagnostic radiology occupied the 16th position in the ranking of specialties according to the median number of order in the choice for each of the positions offered in the years studied. The first diagnostic radiology residency position was usually assigned after 75 candidates had chosen other specialties, and the last position was usually assigned after 3700–4100 candidates had chosen their positions. During the period studied, of those who chose diagnostic radiology 58% were women and 76% were Spanish nationality. Candidates preferred hospitals in the Autonomous Community of Madrid, and the hospital chosen with the lowest median position (highest score on the competitive examination) was the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona.

Conclusions

Diagnostic radiology is chosen by candidates with good positioning in the ranking according to official examination results, is less likely than other specialties to be chosen by women, and is chosen mostly by Spanish physicians. Candidates prefer large hospitals in provincial capitals.

Resumen
Objetivo

Analizar el perfil del opositor que ha escogido la especialidad de radiodiagnóstico, analizando variables relacionadas con las plazas convocadas a lo largo de la historia.

Material y métodos

Se recogen los datos publicados por el Ministerio de Sanidad español en su página web durante los actos de elección de plaza en el examen MIR desde el año 2006 hasta 2015, comparando la especialidad de radiodiagnóstico con el resto de las ofertadas en términos de plaza, preguntas netas, sexo, nacionalidad y lugar de elección de la plaza.

Resultados

La especialidad de radiodiagnóstico ocupa la posición número 16 en el ranking de especialidades ordenadas según la mediana de número de orden con la que se escogió cada una de sus plazas desde el año 2006 hasta 2015. La primera plaza se suele escoger por debajo del número de orden 75 y la elección de la especialidad se suele terminar entre los números de orden 3.700 y 4.100. Durante el periodo estudiado, un 58% de los electores de radiodiagnóstico fueron mujeres y un 76%, españoles. Los opositores prefieren los hospitales de la comunidad de Madrid, y el hospital elegido con la mediana más baja (mejor número de orden) es el Hospital Clínic de Barcelona.

Conclusiones

Radiodiagnóstico se escoge en el MIR con buenos números de orden, con menor tendencia a ser elegida por mujeres que otras especialidades y escogida en su mayoría por médicos españoles. Se prefieren hospitales grandes en capitales de provincia.
