Background: Medical Education has dramatically evolved in the past decades, and scholarly behaviors have gained popularity. In this study, scholarship-of-teaching activities from Mashhad University of Medical Sciences (MUMS) were evaluated for the first time in this country. Methods: Data related to all applicants who were nominated for promotion to associate and full professor positions were studied retrospectively from 2009 to 2011. All scores had been approved by MUMS scholarship committee. Results: In total, 85 teaching faculty members received scholarship score including 77 male (77). Majority was from medical (61) and dentistry (27) faculties and mainly promoted to associate professor position (78). Mean age of the promoted faculty members from faculty of Pharmacy was significantly lower. Most scores were obtained from preparing and implementation of L&CP (41) and implementation of new educational methods (30). The time elapsed from starting the scholarship evaluation program was significantly correlated with total score (r=0.245, Sig. 0.025) and implementation of new educational methods. Conclusions: Setting of a minimum mandatory score for scholarly teaching has been effective and should be stressed in future.
