Methods The program consisted in the development of the following training activities: Internship, Case Study, Ultrasound Practice, Surgical Practice and Anesthesia Practice in an itinerant way in the five FHCH of the region. Results The implementation of the program allowed for the training in gynecology and obstetrics of 100% of the FHCH medical teams in 2008, improving knowledge and technical skills by decreasing obstetric referrals and developing a better care network. Conclusions The successful experience we present in this article may be useful to other health services that wish to strengthen their maternities through the implementation of teaching pavilions that provide a higher quality and safe care to the users of public health care networks.
