Abstract

Abstract Introduction: Due to some rapid changes in medical knowledge, it is recommended to revise the curriculum of the health allied disciplines periodically. The workers� viewpoints about the compliance of the curriculum with their actual needs may be one of the valuable sources for the future revisions. This study is conducted to attain the medical emergency workers� viewpoints about their attained qualifications in the university to do their jobs in Mashhad in 2015. Methods: This cross-sectional study is carried on 89 medical emergency workers at Mashhad University of Medical Sciences. Data gathered from a questionnaire that its validity and reliability was approved before administering it and then analyzed using SPSS Ver. 11.5. Results: Of the participants, 52.3 had an associate degree and the remained had BSc. (47.7). Most of the participants agreed that the �specific theoretical courses� had a positive impact on their competencies, strongly. Also, the �practical courses� impact on their job competencies were rated as 3.42±0.75 (of 5) by the associate degree holders and 3.56±0.83 by the BSc. degree ones. Of the participants, more than 65 agreed that the curriculum need a revision. Conclusion: Although most of the participants agreed that the current curriculums were partially compliant with their job needs, some parts of the curriculum should be revised to prepare the graduates for their actual job needs. Many of them reported that they had felt some degrees of stress in the emergency situations due to lack of knowledge and practical competencies.
