Investigating the quality of clinical education and determining effective factors are very important in improving the quality of clinical education. The aim of the present study was to determine the viewpoints of surgical technology students of Rafsanjan University of Medical Sciences regarding the quality of clinical education in 2019.


In this descriptive cross-sectional study all Surgical technology students who were experienced in clinical practice were evaluated by census method. The data collection tool was a two-part questionnaire. The first part consist of  5 demographic questions and the second part 47 questions in five educational domains: Instructor, Problematic factors, Supervision and evaluation and Student. Data were analyzed using descriptive (mean, standard deviation, and table) and analytical statistics (Chi-square test, independent t-test) through SPSS.


  Results show that domains of instructor, supervision and evaluation, and student were in good condition (with mean and SD of 1.58±0.30, 1.64±0.44 and 1.64±0.40, respectively) and there was a significant difference only in terms of gender (p=0.033, p<0.001 and p=0.031, respectively). Problematic factors’ domain with mean score of 1.90±0.37 and educational domain with mean score of 1.85±0.29 were in moderate condition. Also, there was significant difference among educational domain,  gender (p=0.023) and year of entry into university (p=0.022).


In the present study, none of the clinical education dimensions was in desirable situation. Considering the appropriate space and facilities for students’ rest and conference presentations, greater communication between instructors, staff, and surgeons will improve the quality of clinical education.
