Background: Awareness of the graduates’ professional situation in order to orientate future plans seem to be necessary. Objective: To identify Qazvin medical graduates professional situation. Methods: A questionnaire was sent to all the students graduates from 1991 till 1997 through a survey. A total number of 98 responses were gathered (Of about 480 sent questionnaires). Findings: Out of these responses, 66 responses belonged to men and 32 belonged to women who consisted of 62 general practitioners, 26 specialist, and 7 residents. The specialists were mostly internists, pediatricians and anesthesiologists. They spent their time as follows: 19.6±37.9 hours in visiting patients, 14.26 on teaching, 6.47 on research, 19 on medical-related works, 28.5 on management, 14.7 in studying medical books and journals. Some graduates (About 61%) believed that studying in Qazvin university has nearly prepared them to accept the responsibility to work as a physician. Some graduates didn file for their patients, while the same number of them didn agree to inservice training. The majority of graduates agreed to a change in the Health service system and also to limit the acceptance of medical students in universities. Instead, they mostly emphasized the importance of increasing education quality. Conclusion: The results indicate that, health service system must be reformed in our society. Moreover, the medical students should work in the health fields to prepare themselves for their future. The information about the graduates should be followed up.
