The present study analyses the psychometric properties of the self-efficacy scale applied to teamwork and leadership of university students of health sciences of the Universidad Autónoma de Chihuahua in Mexico. The scale, designed for this work is a Likert-type survey of 16 items, with a response scale from 0 to 10.The total sample included 524 participants; 202 women and 322 men, all students of health Sciences, with a mean age of 18.60 years. The factor structure of the questionnaire was analyzed through two separate exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis. Psychometric analysis showed that a two-factorial structure was viable and adequate for the study, giving appropriate indicators of adjustment, reliability and validity. Also, the results of the factor analysis indicated the presence of strong evidence of factor structure stability.
