Abstract: Objective: To present a model of assessment of the satisfaction level of the attendants in a short-duration course, considering the financial costs and the acquired knowledge. Methods: By means of the presentation of questionnaires, a transversal study on a promptly accessible sample of ophthalmologists (n = 29) who attended the "II Course on Transfer of Skills on Adaptation to Contact Lenses", at Sirio-Libanes Hospital, was carried out. Results: The sample was formed by 29 individuals, being 58,6% men and 37,9% women (one person did not answered to the question). 41.4% of the attendants have spent less than 800 reais (US$ 400,00); 24.1% have invested from 800 up to 1000 reais; and 34,5%, from 1200 up to 3000 reais. The acquisition of knowledge was considered "very satisfactory" in relation to 10 (76.92%) of the researched items; "average" in relation to other 3 (23.08%); and no item was considered insufficient. The course would be recommended to colleagues by 95% of the attendants. Conclusions: The model allowed the assessment of expectations and the acquisition of knowledge in each item of the program, the efficiency of each panel of the course, the costs for the students and the satisfaction level of the attendants.
