Abstract: 

Introduction: Emergency ward is of special importance in medical education, as students have the opportunity of getting experienced and skilled in crisis management. Hence, this study was performed to investigate interns’ viewpoints toward the present situation of education at the end of emergency ward.
Methods: In this descriptive cross-sectional study performed during the academic year of 2007-2008, 120 interns of emergency ward were selected using census sampling method in educational hospital of Emam Reza affiliated to Tabriz University of Medical Sciences. Data was collected using a questionnaire consisting of 4 parts (how interns’ time is spent, their satisfaction with learning patient management in special situations, clinical skills, and quality of emergency ward). Data was analyzed by SPSS software version 5 using descriptive statistics and t-test.
Results: Satisfaction of the majority of students with the manner of clinical skills education in the management of special urgent situation was in average to high level (except for the management of allergic emergencies which was reported to be low). Interns’ satisfaction with procedural skills education was reported to be mainly within the range of average to very high. Agreement of 64.2% of participants about extending the duration of emergency ward course was high or very high. The mean ranking score of the emergency ward rotation compared to other passed rotations by interns was almost 2 (1: the best situation, 10: the worst situation).

Conclusion: Although students’ satisfaction with educational status showed an improvement compared to previous studies, but the current one is still far from ideal condition.
