Background & Objective: This study aimed to evaluate the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department of Semnan University of Medical Sciences in 2015 and compare it with the existing evaluation conducted in 2002 to promote the quality of education in this department.
Materials & Methods: An accreditation pattern was used in the current study. In 2000, the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department of Amir-al-Momenin Teaching Hospital in Semnan designed its internal evaluation pattern, in which all educational, research, and therapeutic goals, institutional and organizational status, educational process, and equipment availability status were examined. A total of 40 questionnaires were applied. In each questionnaire, the criteria were scored from 1 to 5 (very poor to excellent). Gorman’s classification was employed for final analysis and a score lower than 2.51 was considered as unsatisfactory.
Results: In this evaluation, the educational goals achieved a score of 4.3 and were in the strong range of Gorman’s classification. The educational programs obtained a score of 5 and were in the range of very strong. Both educational goals and educational programs showed a significant progress compared to 2002. The educational process with a score of 3.11 was more than satisfactory; the therapeutic goals with a score of 4.3 were in the strong range; the institutional and organizational status of the department with a score of 4.43 was in the strong range; and the research goals with a score of 5 were in the strong range. Additionally, space, human resources, and equipment scored 4.4 based on Gorman’s classification and were in the strong range.
Conclusion: Overall, based on the obtained results, the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department with a score of 4.23 was in the strong range of Gorman’s classification, indicating its desirable status. Moreover, the therapeutic-research and educational goals showed a significant progress compared to 2002.
