Abstract: 

Background and Objectives: Professional ability of physicians in urban and rural health centers plays a critical role in success of national health services programs. The present study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of general practitioners' (GPs) participation on promoting the quality of education curriculum of medical students in their health internship courses.
Materials and Methods: In this interventional study, two groups of (n=30 for each group) health internship medical students and all GPs working at University Health Centers were included (n=12). GPs were trained in a training workshop for reviewing the health internship program. Data were collected during and at the end of the workshop from the two groups; internship medical students educated in the centers with and without trained GPs who participated in the study, using the study instrument. Health internship score, students’ satisfaction score and the score of a scientific exam were compared between the two groups. Data were analysed by t-test and Mann-Whitney U test and X2 test.
Results: There was no significant difference between the age and gender of students in the two groups. Educational level of the students in the two groups was also similar. Mean score of health internship in students educated in health centers with trained GPs and health centers without trained GPs were 18
±0.98 and 17.3±1.2 (out of 20), respectively. Mean score of the scientific exam for these two groups of students were 2.9±1.1 and 2.1±0.78 (out of 5), respectively. The results showed a significant difference between these mean scores in the two groups (p<0.01).
Conclusion: The two groups of students were matched based on their age, gender and educational level sufficiently. Our findings showed that GPs participation in educational program of medical students in their health internship not only improves both students scientific knowledge and their health internship score but also increases students satisfaction from their educational program of health internship.
