Background and Objective: Every nation needs to organize research activities for its development and promotion. Since students are recognized as dynamic and future-makers in any society, therefore it is necessary to determine and resolve their research drawbacks. This research was aimed to identify the probable drawbacks and present suitable resolutions in this regard.

Materials and Methods: A questionnaire was used in this cross-sectional study which consists of two parts: an early part of educational and demographic questions and a part of questions regarding research self-efficacy. The questionnaires were distributed in a census manner among 100 medical students at internship level, of which 68 persons completed their own questionnaires. The date was analyzed in SPSS software using t and ANOVA tests.

Results: Overall research self-efficacy mean was equal to 127.87±29.82. There was a statistical significant association between self-efficacy and the gender of students (p=0.028), so that the values in girls and boys were 132.67 and 115.47, respectively. Furthermore the research self-efficacy had significant relations with interest to medicine discipline (p=0.003), participation in research workshops (p=0.007) and having a history of research activity (p=0.001). However, the research self-efficacy had not a significant association with other variables including marital status, educational term, mothers and fathers educational levels and membership in the student research committees.

Conclusion: In regard to the relative weak research self-efficacy of medical students of internship in our study, we may emphasize on the necessity of students activation in research fields. In order to see the increased research activities of students in the future, it is necessary to induce interest and motivation among students. Moreover their research must not be confined only to their thesis.
