Background: Traditionally, the residents �competencies such as professionalism, interpersonal and communication skill have been assessed merely based on their faculty� point of view without feedback. These assessments were neither efficiently, nor sufficiently cover the multi aspects` of residents �competencies. These multi aspects competences mandate the need for more all-around evaluations such as 360° degree. The purpose of the present study was to apply the 360° multisource feedback model for assessing the surgery residents` competencies of Shiraz university of Medical Sciences. Methods: This cross sectional study was performed on 48 residents of the second and third year who were working in the surgery departments. The data were gathered using translated questioners on a 5-point likert scale and distributed to 3 raters (nurses, faculty members and peers). The reliability and validity of the questionnaire were approved by some experts. The data was analyzed by Pearson correlation Coefficient, General Linear Model, T- test and SPSS (17) software. Results: The Internal Consistency reliabilities were up to 80 for all questionnaire. The Pearson correlation co-efficient was significant between the scores given by faculty members and peers (r=0.3, p=0.01). The highest mean score given by the evaluators to residents belonged to the Coworker group (149.6, ±17.23). The third-year residents gave themselves significantly higher scores in comparison with the second year residents (P value=0.01). Conclusions: High Cronbach�s α demonstrates that the translated questioners were reliable. It seems that based on the valid and reliable results of this study, the 360° multisource feedback model is a good frame work for surgery resident�s assessment in Iran.
