Abstract

This study originated from a desire to learn how students perceive the educational environment in medical and dental schools. This descriptive study was done using the standard tool DREEM on 472 students of medicine and dentistry at Kermanshah University of Medical Sciences (KUMS). Reliability and validity of the Persian version of DREEM questionnaire were approved. The questionnaire consists of the student's socio-demographic information and 50 questions in 5 domains of learning. At the end, the results were analyzed using the SPSS 16 software and reported as follows: students' perception of learning mean score 20.39±5.92 from 48; students' perception of teachers 20.96±6.05 from 44, students' academic perception 14.71±5.58 from 22, students' social perception 13.85±3.94 from 28 and students' perception of atmosphere 22.58±5.93 from 48. The students' attitude towards the condition of the educational environment in Medical and Dental Schools of KUMS on the basis of DREEM model is observed as moderately favorable which means there are some problems in this regard.
