Aims: The aim of this study is to investigate the problems/achievements experienced by Medical Biochemistry residents/assistants during the COVID-19 pandemic and to create suggestions that will ensure the continuity of working conditions and speciality education in better conditions.

Materials and Methods: The questionnaire prepared in the study was sent by e-mail to the Heads of Medical Biochemistry Department of the Faculty of Medicine, Training and Research Hospital and City Hospital across Turkey in April 2021. A total of 67 usable questionnaires were obtained by participating on a voluntary basis. Thus, 59.3% (n=113) of the total universe was reached.

Results: 83.6% of the respondents stated that they used distance education methods in theoretical training, 60.4% stated that distance education was efficient and 64.3% stated that distance education should be continued. 71.6% of the participants reported that they were assigned in clinical patient management, especially in the COVID-19 policlinic, emergency service and COVID-19 inpatient service, and 66.7% of the assigned assistants reported that they were not given any training on the functioning beforehand. 65.7% of the participants and 81.3% of the assistants assigned to COVID-19 clinical patient management stated that their specialist training was adversely affected. 66.6% of the assistants assigned to patient management stated that these assignments reduced their motivation and performance in their field. In parallel with the increase in the years of seniority of the residents participating in the survey, there was an increasing trend in the percentage of feeling lack of knowledge and experience, and this rate was 60% for residents with a seniority of more than four years.

Conclusion: The results of this survey study showed that during the COVID-19 pandemic, most of the Medical Biochemistry residents thought that their speciality training was negatively affected during the pandemic period, but they found online distance education interesting. It was concluded that it would be appropriate to provide training to the residents prior to the assignment of clinical patient management, and that this assignment should be taken into account when determining the number of shifts in a way that would not adversely affect the residents' own branch training.
