Introduction: The ideal characteristics of the Graduate Professor of Pediatrics at the Medical School of the Universidad de Chile are yet not defined. Objective: To determine these characteristics from members' perception. Methodology: Qualitative research. Focus groups for Professors, alumni and Pediatrics students and interviews to three authorities took place at the Campus Oriente.

Results: A teaching profile was elaborated differentiating the role of the professional as a person (committed, responsible, honest, respectful, tolerant, friendly, empathetic, assertive, leader, role model and able to maintain good interpersonal relationships), as a teacher (trained in teaching, planner, evaluator, with protected time for teaching, with capacities for self-reflection and self-assessment, learning facilitator, motivator, facilitator of a climate that encourages learning, communicator, with vocation, challenging, accessible, knowledgeable and user of new technologies and with ability to review the teaching process) and as a clinician (expert in his discipline, updated, researcher, identified and committed to the institution, able to work in a team).
