Through an estimation of an implicit point system, we try to infer some of the principles used by a medical team in the allocation of kidneys for transplantation in Mexico. Results indicate that criteria linked to principles of medical efficiency and of position in the waiting list fundamentally determine the final allocation of organs.// Por medio de la estimación de un sistema de puntaje implícito intentamos inferir algunos de los principios utilizados por un equipo médico en la asignación de trasplantes renales en México. Los resultados indican que los criterios vinculados a principios de eficiencia médica y posición en la lista de espera son los que determinan fundamentalmente la asignación final de los órganos.
