Background & objective: Good employment, continuing education, attitude towards the field, and satisfaction with the place of study are the indicators of the responsibility of universities. This study aimed to determine the employment status and examine its relationship with attitudes and satisfaction about the place of study of graduates from 1390-1395 of Ardabil School of Health in 1400.
Methods: In this cross-sectional study, the census selected 340 graduates of the Faculty of Health. Data were collected by attitude and satisfaction questionnaires and analyzed in SPSS18 software.
Results: It was found that 20 to 32% of graduates still need to be recruited. Seventy-nine people (more than 23%) have continued their education. Fourteen people (4.1%) had dissatisfaction, 16 people (4.7%) had low satisfaction, 69 people (20.3%) had moderate satisfaction, 146 people (42.9%) had high satisfaction, and 95 people (27.9%) %) were very satisfied with the place of study. 58% had a positive attitude (good and very good) towards the place of study, and 20% had a negative attitude. Employees' attitudes and satisfaction were better than those of the unemployed, and there was a significant relationship between age, gender, marital status, and employment (p=0.001).
Conclusion: The results showed that graduates' employment and continuing education status were not favorable, but the attitude and level of satisfaction with the place of study and field of study were good. Faculty and university administrators can help make rational decisions, primarily through skill-based training courses and increase student's ability to start businesses. In addition, the Ministry of Health can recruit students based on the needs of the provinces instead of recruiting students by volume.
