Background
Achieving a desirable clinical education requires continuous assessment of the current situations in clinical education and identifying the strengths and weaknesses. This study aimed to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the clinical education fields.
Methods

Data collecting tool was based on Weldner and Laurent questionnaire. Research sample, equal to research community, was 156 midwifery students and 13 midwifery educators selected through census method. Collected data were analyzed by descriptive and analytic (Chi square) statistics through SPSS (ver.13) software.
Findings
The major weaknesses of clinical education settings were inaccessibility to necessary information prior to clinical education, lack of study rooms and conference spaces for students, and opportunities to interact with some faculty and university headquarters. The major strengths were considering students’ educational needs, providing adequate clinical wards and equipment, and various cases. There were significant difference between views of students in various educational sections toward evaluation of clinical education in half of items (p<0.05).
