Background and purpose

Acquisition of basic skills and professionalism in medicine depends on the quality and quantity of education in clinical settings. This study aimed at assessing the quality of clinical education in different departments of Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences.

Materials and methods

This descriptive study was conducted in medical clerkships and interns (n=175). The participants were selected via census sampling in 2019. Data were collected using a checklist based on clinical education standards of Iran Ministry of Health and Medical Education. Written comments from clerkships and interns on the compliance of morning report training programs, clinical trainings, clinical rounds, grand rounds, journal club, and clinical skills center with clinical training standards were received. Data analysis was performed in SPSS V16.


The morning report program and clinical skills center program had the highest (85.1%) and lowest (72.2%) scores in clinical education. We observed significant differences between these scores and the scores for other clinical programs (P>0.05). The quality of all clinical education programs was similar according to men and women. The clerkship and interns had different ideas about the status of all clinical education programs except in the morning report program and the clerkship were more satisfied with clinical education programs.


From the studentschr('39') point of view, the morning report program was of acceptable quality, but the clinical training programs, club journal, grand rounds, and clinical skills center had some drawbacks. Training workshops for clinical professors is recommended to enhance the standards of clinical training programs.
