SUMMARY In Colombia the educational formation has been regulated by competitions and this context makes reference to the mobilization of knowledge and skills in diverse areas that are combined to solve problems and to produce new wisdom. The objective of this research was to identify the perception of the infirmary student, in front of the formation by competitions in the academic programs of the professional area and the existing correlation with the result obtained in the state qualification examinations (ECAES). A co relational and evaluative descriptive study, in which an instrument was applied that measured the perception of the student regarding its formation, the results of final notes of each of the academic programs denominated "Infirmary Care Taking" and the results of the ECAES obtained by the students of the last academic year. The data analysis showed differences between the average perception of the students about the grades reached within the Academic Programs and the average obtained in the test of competitions designed by ACOFAEN-ICFES. The students consider to be prepared to face the labour world, although in the examination of valuation by competitions of the higher education, the average obtained did not correspond to the perceptive valuation of fulfilment. A direct proportional relation between the general average of the students and the points of ECAES was found. Thus, students with high averages in the faculty also showed high points in the state qualification examination.
