Abstract

Introduction: The sensitivity of teaching and learning processes at universities highlights the necessity of assessment, which is followed by improvement of education quality and efficacy of education system in the country. This study was carried out to perform an internal evaluation of department of anatomy and cell biology at Kermanshah University of Medical Sciences in 2015.

Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted in the first six months in 2015, aiming to perform an internal evaluation of Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology at Kermanshah University of Medical Sciences. Data were collected through the Ministry of Health’s internal assessment questionnaire. The questionnaire was completed by 9 faculty members and 50 students. At the end, the mean scores obtained from the questionnaires were evaluated by the standards determined by the ministry of health and were presented as percentages. 

Results: A total of 40 criteria were assessed, from which 7 criteria were reported to enjoy a good status (100%). The criteria related to financing and education and research space were not favorable and demanded more attention on the part of authorities.

Conclusion: The internal evaluation showed that despite a favorable status found for various criteria, some domains still needed more accurate planning and attention for quality improvement.
