The questionnaire included the importance of each course of basic sciences and quality of courses presentation inachieving the clinical objectives. The sample size was 58. The data of the study was analysed using descriptive statistics, independent t- test,and determining the mean and the percentage of scores for each question.

Results: While physiology was the most important course for clerk students in achieving the clinical objectives, intern students introduced the anatomy course for this purpose. The lowest score was given to medical physics by both groups in achieving the clinical objectives. Regarding the presentation quality of courses to achieve the clinical objectives, the maximum score belonged to coordination of the final and comprehensive exams with course subjects and the lowest one was related to applicability of basic science courses in clinic.

Conclusion: According to the findings of the study, emphasizing practical aspects of basic science courses in medical education is essetial. This suggests performing a revision in the current educational methods of courses of medical basic scienses.
