Abstract: Introduction. Health professionals are asked to promote health, especially organ transplantation; however, they do not always have specific training.Objective. To analyze information about donation and organ transplantation among Spanish medical students.Method. The population under study is medical students in Spanish universities using the database of the International Donor Collaborative Project, stratified by geographic area and academic year (n = 9275). The instrument used is the attitude questionnaire for organ donation for "PCID-DTO-Rios" transplantation, validated with an explained variance of 63.203% and alpha = 0.834. The Student t test was applied together with the chi(2) test, complemented by an analysis of the remainders, and Fisher's exact test was applied.Results. Of the students, 74% indicate that they have received information from university professors about organ transplant. Concerning specific issues with the donation, it is notable that only 66.7% (n = 6190) know and accept the concept of brain death as the death of a person. However, only 22% consider themselves as having good information, and 35.3% indicate that their information is scarce or void. Students indicate having received information about transplant from other extra-university sources, such as television and Internet (80.9%), books and magazines (73.2%), and the press (66.9%). From the information obtained in the sociofamilial field, 60.7% have obtained information from the family and 58.1% from friends. Of this information, 9% has been negative from friends, 7.5% from family, 6% from the Internet and television, and 4% from university professors.Conclusion. Spanish medical students believe they have little information about organ transplantation and have received negative information.
