Samples were selected by convenience sampling and divided into two groups of blended education (virtual and clinical) and traditional (clinical) education in a sequential and non-random manner. The final OSCE test scores were used to assess learning and the researcher-made questionnaire was a tool for measuring educational satisfaction. Significance level was considered less than 0.05.
Results: It was revealed that there was no significant difference between the mean and standard deviation of the OSCE exam score in the traditional education group (17.81±2.21) and in the combined education group (17.75±1.76) (P=0.85). In terms of the total score of educational satisfaction and its subgroups including academic competence, dynamism and interest, strengthening the motivation and academic competence of students, the relationship between teacher and student in and outside the department, evaluation and feedback system, curriculum planning, ethical issues, educational rules, and regulations; there was a significant difference between the scores of the traditional education group (116.04±24.83) and the blended education group (147.71±26.53) (P<0.001).
