Abstract

Introduction: Since the reformation of clinical education problems can improve the quality of medical services, one of the evaluation methods for learning environment at the medical universities is to use the DREEM (Dundee Ready Educational Environment Measure) standard questionnaire. This study aimed to compare the viewpoints of residents at Babol University of Medical Sciences towards the learning environment based on the DREEM pattern.

Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed in 2013 on 106 residents studying in educational institutions of Babol University of Medical Sciences. The research tools included 7 demographic questions and 50 questions related to the DREEM standard questionnaire.

Results: Totally, residents had favorable views for perceptions of learning and clinical professors (73%), social conditions (63%), their academic abilities (83%) and educational atmosphere (71%); there was a significant relationship between each of the five fields (P<0.05).

Conclusion: According to the findings, pediatrics and internal residents had a more favorable viewpoint toward their educational environment. So, paying more attention to problems in the clinical training environments in other courses needs to adopt a more comprehensive strategy.
