Background and Objective: Positive attitude to career and academic discipline among students is an important factor in academic success of students. This study aimed to determine the attitudes of Zahedan Health School students toward their discipline and job prospect.

Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted in Zahedan Medical Sciences University in 2015. About 160 students of School of Public Health were selected using stratified random sampling. The data collection instrument was the standard questionnaire of job future and prospect and t-test and one way ANOVA were used for data analysis.

Results:  Among the total number of students, 107  (66.9%) were female and 133 (83.1%) single.  The results indicated that the mean age of the students was 22.71±2.42 years. The students' attitudes mean was 27.14 ± 6.15 with the range of 9-40 and job prospect 19.78 ± 3.71with the range of 7-28 which were higher than the standard mean. One way ANOVA  test results showed that there was an statistical association between the average score of job prospect among disciplines in School of Health (P=0.048). Job prospect was a negative factor in students' attitudes toward the health field. Moreover, salary and an increase in student admission were the negative affecting factors related to the students’ attitudes.

Conclusion: The study showed the students’ interest to their field of study. However, some factors lead to reduce students' positive attitudes toward health courses and their job future that requires health system managers’ attention to these concerns through various mechanisms, including job situation assurance for these students.
