This study aimed to determine the OC level of Kermanshah University of Medical Sciences (KUMS) faculty members.


This cross-sectional study was conducted among 177 faculty members of KUMS in western Iran. The samples were randomly selected among faculty members. The data were collected by self-reporting using a standard Balfour and Whechler questionnaire and analyzed in SPSS software version 16 using t-tests and Pearson correlations.


The mean score of OC was 28.12 (SD: 4.82), ranging from 9 - 45. There was no significant difference between gender and OC (P = 0.239). OC had a positive and significant correlation with age (r = 0.192 & P = 0.011). The relationship between job history and OC was positive but insignificant (r = 0.147 & P = 0.057).


According to the OC score, emphasizing the subjects and areas of OC can effectively increase faculty members’ dedication to the university
