Background and Objective: Training the future work force of the health and treatment system is a matter of the utmost importance. To this end, it is necessary to have enough information about the current situation of the students and find out about their attitudes towards their chosen fields. This study was conducted to determine the satisfaction rate of the anesthesia students about their field of study and their attitudes towards future job perspectives.

Materials and Methods: 109 anesthesia students from Rafsanjan University of Medical Sciences (RUMS) participated in this descriptive cross-sectional study in 2012. A researcher-made-questionnaire was used to obtain the following information: demographic information (7 items), satisfaction rate (8 items), survey the student's attitude about current chosen field (9 items) and survey about the future job perspective (4 items). Data were analyzed using independent t-test and Chi-square test.

Results: The satisfaction rate was approximately medium (2.33±0.63).Only 57.8% of the students had little prior knowledge about their chosen major before going the university. They indicated a positive and acceptable attitude towards the theoretical and functional classes and also the personality and individual characteristics of their university lectuers. The most important factors leading them to choose their major were, helping people, their job managers, and promoting social status respectively.

Conclusion: The satisfaction rate of the anesthesia students about their majors was almost good and their attitude was positive. Improving the facilities and educational equipments, and increasing the prospective students' prior knowledge about their major before going to the university could elevate the satisfaction rate and interest of the students to choose anesthesiology as a major at the university.
