Introduction: The development of intellectual capital is a strategy that has important effects on behavior and performance of universities. The purpose of this study was to identify the factors affecting the development of intellectual capital among faculty members of region 5 medical universities in Iran.
Methods: This quantitative descriptive study was conducted in Iran’s region 5 in 2014-15 academic year. Research population included all assistant professors and higher degree faculty members in Iran’s region 5 including medical universities of Fars, Bushehr, Hormozgan and Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad Provinces. Krejcie and Morgan table was used to calculate the sample size and 260 subjects were selected through ratio sampling. Data collection tool was a researcher-made questionnaire whose face and content validity were confirmed by 10 education and management experts and its reliability was calculated at 0.88 (Cronbach’s alpha). The data were analyzed by means of structural equation analysis in Amos Software.
Results: A total of 240 participants responded to the questionnaire. In terms of organizational factors, perceived organizational support (factor loading of 0.83) and in terms of human factors, professionalism (factor loading of 0.68) had the greatest impact on development of intellectual capital among region 5 faculty members.
Conclusion: Since perceived organizational support and professionalism have the greatest impact on development of intellectual capital among region 5 faculty members, increased organization support and focus on professionalism are suggested for improving the intellectual capital of universities.
