The data was collected through a questionnaire consisted of three parts. Part one dealt with demographic characteristics of the participants. Part two was adapted from the valid and reliable Ghorbanian`s questionnaire. Part three was a researcher- made student`s efficacy questionnaire which its validity and reliability were calculated in this study. The mean scores of the evaluated domains were between 0 and 100 and were consequently categorized at three levels: weak, medium and desirable. The collected data was analyzed using descriptive statistics and independent T-tests. Results: the mean age of the students was 21.69±1.41. The mean scores of the assessed domains were: goals and educational plans (51.03±23.77), Instructor (51.21±26.47), dealing with students (52.85±24.89), educational environment (47.85±0.288), supervision and evaluation (44.76±29.08) and self-efficacy (63.67±20.15). The mean scores of Instructor (55.88±22) and dealing with students (52/5±55.05) were the highest among Operation Room and Anesthesiology students, respectively. There was no significant difference between the two groups regarding the evaluated domains (p=0.25).
