Introduction: IEQM Model is a tool for evaluating universities that provides regular, systematic and comprehensive review of university activities. The aim of this study was to evaluate the quality of education in the field of focus on workforce based on IEQM model in Mashhad University of Medical Sciences.
Methods: This descriptive cross-sectional study was performed on 150 faculty members and employees of Mashhad University of Medical Sciences in 2014. Subjects were selected through stratified random sampling. Data were collected using Ministry of Health’s IEQM model 5-point Likert scale questionnaire whose validity and reliability were confirmed. The data were analyzed by means of descriptive statistics, one-way ANOVA and independent t-test at the significance level of 0.05.
Results: A total of 125 questionnaires were analyzed. The highest and lowest means scores were related to faculties of health and nursing respectively. The best and worst scores were related to the fields of working conditions (82.82±2.0) and employees’ empowerment (65.73±2.0). In general, the score of focus on workforce was 55% of the total points (85). The mean score of this field was not significantly related to education (p=0.5), gender (p=0.6) and the faculties under study (p=0.6).
Conclusion: The status of Mashhad University of Medical Sciences in the field of focus on workforce was at an average level. Results indicated that the working condition was almost appropriate from the perspective of faculty members but employees’ empowerment in the faculties was a priority.
