Introduction: Logbook is one of the common methods for evaluation of clinical skills of medical students. This method has been used in recent years in Shiraz University of Medical Sciences for clinical evaluation of midwifery students. Therefore, this study aimed to determine the level of students’ satisfaction with this method. Methods: This descriptive cross-sectional study was performed in 2014 in Shiraz University of Medical Sciences and 52 students of midwifery who attended "Medical-Surgical" (MS) and "Gynecology" (Gyn) practicums were selected by convenience sampling. Data were collected using a valid and reliable researcher-made questionnaire. It consisted of 23 items and measured nine domains with a five-point Likert scale. Data were analyzed by means of descriptive statistics, ANOVA and post hoc tests. Results: The mean of midwifery students’ satisfaction with the logbook was 48.51±15.02 in MS practicum and 48.81±16.94 in Gyn practicum. In the MS practicum, the highest satisfaction score was related to the domain of “being stressful” (59.61±26.11) and the lowest score was related to “being fair” (44.61±20.81). In the Gyn practicum, the highest satisfaction score was related to the domain of “conformity to educational goals” (57.30±19.71) and the lowest score was related to “interest in the logbook method” (43.46±20.72). In both practicums, the satisfaction level of last semester students was higher than that of other students. Conclusion: Use of Logbook in the clinical evaluation of MS and Gyn practicums for midwifery students of Shiraz University of Medical Science, was accompanied by relative dissatisfaction. Therefore, revision and modification of the various aspects of the Logbook seem to be necessity in order to make students more satisfied.
