Abstract

Background: Research and research skills of faculty members are essential for the
development of higher education and sustainable development. Therefore, this study
was conducted to develop needs assessment of faculty members in research at the Tabriz
University of Medical Sciences.
Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted in 2018. Of 848 faculty members
at the Tabriz University of Medical Sciences, 262 members participated in the study,
determined based on Morgan’s table. A researcher-created questionnaire with 5-point
Likert-type closed-ended questions was used for collecting data. Validity and reliability
were determined with content and construct validity and Cronbach’s alpha, respectively.
Data were analyzed with Pearson’s chi-square and one-way ANOVA using SPSS 22.
Results: Factor analysis showed that the educational needs of the faculty members in
research at the Tabriz University of Medical Sciences can be classified into eight topics
that were not different in terms of the academic rank, but there was a significant difference
in terms of gender and faculties. Faculty members in the pharmacy, dentistry and nursing
faculties reported higher educational needs than the faculty in medicine and other
faculties.
Conclusion: The results showed that women reported higher educational needs, differing
across faculties. It is suggested that research management training courses be prioritized,
and key reasons or factors influencing the research in the faculties of dentistry, pharmacy
and nursing be investigated.
