Introduction. Investigating educational situations of interns in different departments is one of the objectives of educational planning in order to prevent a low quality education and provide some solution for that. This study was done to investigate the learning situation of male and female interns in Obstetrics and Gynecology Department at Zahedan University of Medical Sciences in order to compare the amount of their learning, and to provide some suggestions to improve the quality of learning and education.

The data collection tool was a questionnaire which included questions regarding common emergencies and diseases of obstetrics and gynecology, and different learning criteria. The data analysis was done by SPss software using mean, standard deviation, frequency of learning criteria and Chi-square.

Results. The mean of frequency of learning indicators such as observation, discussion on bedside, managing under the supervision of residents and attending physicians, and personal management, in common emergencies and diseases of obstetrics and gynecology in male interns were lower than female interns. Furthermore, the mean of frequency of managing capabilities in common emergencies for male and female interns were 12% and 70.5%, respectively. These values for common diseases were 14.2% and 59.3%, in male and female interns, respectively. The Chi-square test showed a significant relationship between the learning criteria, and proper managing capabilities.
