  Background and Objectives: Considering the increase of ethical problem cases in recent years' promoting professional ethics among medical students is important. In order to identify the strengths and weaknesses, as well as opportunities and threats of medical ethics training these effective strategies have been designed. Using these strategies can make medical ethics training in Rafsanjan University of Medical Sciences (RUMS) more effective and more efficient.

  Materials and Methods : In this cross sectional study, after identifying a list of strengths and weaknesses as well as opportunities and threats of medical ethics training, a questionnaire was used to obtain the opinions of the faculty members of (RUMS), and then the strategies were presented in the model of SWOT.

  Results : According to the internal factors analysis table, among the strengths, the most important rate of significance (weight) was given to the existence of rich Islamic and historical sources in the field of medical ethics with the weight of 0.10 and the grade of 2.9. Further more, among the weaknesses the most important rate of significance was given to using traditional methods in the medical ethics training with the weight of 0.12 and the grade of 2.7. Regarding the sum of points in the analysis table, internal factors (2.74) and external factors (2.83) we can generally say that the reaction of the faculty members of RUMS to the strengths and weaknesses and also to the opportunities and threats in the medical ethics training is less than average.

  Conclusion : Considering the findings of this research, using the method of SWOT, on the whole, 17 strategies in the forms of competitive, defensive, conservative and aggressive are presented. The validity of these strategies was measured by the study group and its credit rate was high. After prioritizing strategies, the first priority belonged to medical ethics training in the form of interdisciplinary by professors of ethics and clinical sciences.
