Introduction: Rule-based and discipline-oriented action is essential for dynamism and coordination of organizations. To achieve this, managers need to be familiar with organizational rules and regulations. This study aimed to assess the educational needs regarding administrative rules and regulations among faculty deans and healthcare network managers of Isfahan University of Medical Sciences and to provide an educational package accordingly. Methods: This cross-sectional, descriptive study was performed in 2012. The study population consisted of faculty deans and healthcare network managers of Isfahan University of Medical Sciences (dean of university, heads and deputies of faculties, hospitals, and health networks) who were selected by census method. Data collection tool was a valid and reliable researcher-made questionnaire. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, independent t-test and ANOVA. Results: The mean and standard deviation score of the whole questionnaire was 4.01 out of 5. The lowest mean score (3.44) was related to “knowledge of an article in the Act of Administrative Justice related to failure to offer documents to President of the Court of Administrative Justice or the branches of the Court” and the highest mean score (4.01) was related to “knowledge of administrative violations recognized in the article 8 of Administrative Violations Code of State Staff”. Findings showed that educational needs of faculty deans and healthcare network managers were highly critical in terms of the rules and regulations. No significant difference was found in terms of gender and education. The final outcome of the present research was separate educational packages for each area of expertise. Conclusion: Given the necessity of coordinated and rule-governed organizational initiations, embedding relevant rules and regulations in educational programs seems essential.

Keywords: Educational needs, managers, university of medical sciences, administrative rules and regulations.
