Abstract

Introduction: Emotional intelligence is a key element that determines the achievement and efficiency of a person so that 80% of the achievement is dependent on it. The current research was carried out to determine the correlation between emotional intelligence and evaluation score of the faculty members of Kermanshah University of Medical Sciences (KUMS) in 2014.

Methods: In this analytical-descriptive and cross-sectional study, 150 faculty members of KUMS were selected as study sample through convenience sampling technique in 2014. The instruments for data collection included demographic information questionnaire, the mean scores of the faculty members’ evaluation reported by the students and Shrink emotional intelligence questionnaire. The collected data were fed into SPSS-21 software and analyzed by descriptive statistics, Pearson correlation coefficient, independent sample t-test and one-way ANOVA. P<0.05 was considered significant.

Results: Emotional intelligence was reported to be good in 133 (88.7%) faculty members, moderate in 15 (10%) faculty members and very good in 2 (1.3%) faculty members. There was a significantly positive correlation between emotional intelligence and the faculty members’ evaluation score reported by the students (p=0.047, r=0.28). No significant correlation, however, was reported between emotional intelligence and work experience, age, marital status and gender. The faculty members of the schools of health and pharmacy obtained the maximum and minimum levels of emotional intelligence, respectively (p=0.02). 

Conclusion: The emotional intelligence of the faculty members of KUMS was an acceptable level and was significantly correlated with their evaluation score.
