INTRODUCTION: In Brazil, Medical Residency Programs have specific criteria to evaluate a student's résumé. The aim of this study was to analyze the main criteria adopted by Medical Residency Centers in their recruitment programs during the year of 2011. METHODS: The requirements of the main Medical Residency Centers were reviewed according to the National Medicine Council. A questionnaire standardized by the authors was used to collect the data. For analysis of the results, EpiInfo version 6.4 was used. RESULTS: A total of 362 institutions, which offer 7,931 vacancies around Brazil, were included in the study. In total, 57.4% of the applications were made for the following medical specialties: Internal Medicine (20%), Pediatrics (13.9%), General Surgery (13.6%), Obstetrics and Gynecology (10%). A small amount of vacancies were offered in Family and Community Health, corresponding to 6% of the total. The activities developed by the students during the course considered most important by the Medical Residency Centers were: publication of papers (97%), tutorial activities (92.3%), submission of abstract to congresses (87.9%), trainee program in hospitals (80.6%) and knowing a foreign language (63.7%).
