Introduction: Faculties’ behavior and performance in educational settings will be judged by different groups. Due to their direct exposure to the teacher, students’ judgment is counted more significantly and their experiences could be employed in order to improve faculties’ teaching performance. The aim of this study is to explain the characteristics of a desirable teacher from the viewpoints of students. Methods: This qualitative study was performed on 15 students of a Medical University in Tehran who were selected through purposeful sampling. Data was collected through semi-structured interviews. Qualitative content analysis was used to analyze data. Results: Two fundamental themes, including teacher’s behavior attractive learning, were emerged from analysis of the declarations of participants about their teachers’ performance. Each theme includes several categories and subthemes and any of these describes a specific aspect of students’ experience of teachers’ performance. Conclusion: Based on the experiences of participants, teaching competencies and qualifications of teachers not only depends on their knowledge and professional skills, but also depends on their capabilities in effective interaction with students. In fact, observing ethics in communication with students and attractive course presentations are keys to successful teaching.
