The Bologna Process, name given to the recent teaching reform, has created a revolution in university society. Examples include the disappearance of the lecture for a permanent learning process, the incorporation of new educational trends that increase student motivation, the European Credit Transfer System, the organization of teaching and its contents according to competences which, after legislative definition, will allow future professionals to perform recognized actions.
Given the description of competences in the future undergraduate degree modules, we propose:
a) To quantify the quality aspects of the teaching of the course stays Clinical Resiency II, of the third year of the Diploma in Physiotherapy.
b) Iearn which skills are acquired taught in current teaching, as perceived by students and teachers as well as the degree to which they are taught-learned.
c) Identify weaknesses in the teaching-learning process as a tool to modify your approach in a direction that allows the acquisition of jurisdiction in the first degree.

To detect significant differences (p <0.05 ) between the values of both groups using the test of association of qualitative variables chi-square, in relation to:
a) The importance given to each student and teacher competence in clinical training.

The results are shown in a double entry table where the above aspects and their level of statistical significance are valued.
• In relation to the question "In my opinion, the competence xxx has a significance level …” we found significant differences between student-teachers in the following competencies: CP4, CP7, CP10, CP12.
• In relation to the question "In my opinion, the degree to which I think I've learned-acquired the competence xxx is ..." we found significant differences between student-teachers in the following competencies: CP1, CP4, CP7, CP9.
The current state of knowledge, from completely different approaches teacher-student, offers a very valuable information which along with the right tools to treat this information will analyze the negative aspects and identify variables associated with these results to identify gaps that students identified as principal in the acquisition of skills and develop improvement strategies that enable learning.
