Abstract: 

The main purpose of this paper is to consider the effective factors on university students' attitude toward physical exercises. In other word, the paper is searching the correlation between economic, social and cultural factors and physical exercises. First a review of literature and theories in relation to sociology of sport was done. Then a theoretical model based on family economic status, student social status, demography of students, cultural background, sport facilities and student awareness was established. There are 12 hypotheses related to independent variables and dependent variable. A sample of 536 student out of 4038 medical students were selected by random sampling. The method of study was survey with a questionnaire. After using SPSS, the following results were obtained: there are no correlations between family income, student pocket money, student age and attitude toward sport. Medical management students have a high interest in physical exercise. Women students are more interested in sport. Those who are aware of sport facilities outside the university do more exercise.
