To obtain knowledge if basic medical education satisfies the demands the medical graduates face during internship is a basis for the design and evaluation of teaching.The aim of the study was to evaluate the physicians’ satisfaction with the teaching of neurology at universities in Sweden subsequent to having tested the obtained skills in the 21 months internship needed for Swedish physician licence.A questionnaire with 23 questions was sent in 2007 to 1628 newly licensed doctors who received their cards between 2005-01-01 and 2007-10-09, after completing Swedish internship.Onethousand-fiftyone physicians (65%) answered the questionnaire. Most felt that the quality of the theoretical and practical education in neurology obtained at the university was good or very good. Physicians with less coherent university neurology teaching time indicated to a greater degree that teaching time at the undergraduate level was too short. The physicians indicated that neurological issues are common during the internship. A majority indicated that that they had received too little training in neurology during their internship. The results give a good feedback for further development of neurology teaching. Similar studies could be carried out also for other areas of graduate medical education.
