Background: This research aimed at studying the factors affecting medical students’ satisfaction with their future job.
Materials and methods: In a descriptive, cross-sectional research, 250 medical interns (94 males and 156 females) at the Islamic Azad University in Tehran were studied using an attitude questionnaire with demographic features. They included all medical interns studying medicine in the academic year 1384-1385 (2005-2006) in Qods clinic and Amir Al-Momenin (A), Javadiyeh, Bou-Ali, Javaheri, Torfeh, Kashani, Lavasani, and Naft hospitals. The obtained data were analyzed using t-test, chi-square, and ANOVA.
Results: The results of the study showed that mothers’ educational level was the only variable having a significant statistical relationship with the students job satisfaction score (p<0.01). However, no significant correlation was found between students job satisfaction and factors like sex, marital status, the presence of a physician in the family, fathers’ educational level, and willingness to practice medicine after graduation.
Conclusion: Dissatisfaction with their economic status, the future of medical practice, working hours, and obligatory services in deprived areas are among the factors which diminish medical students’ motivation to practice medicine in the future.
Keywords: Medical interns, medical students, job satisfaction
