Data gathering tool was a questionnaire using five degree Likert scale and including 15 questions. Data was analyzed by SPSS software.

±0.36 and the mean score of evaluation by students was 4.04±0.39 (t=13.34, p=0.001). The mean score of more than 90% of faculty members' self-assessment was higher than 4 (excellent).
