Introduction: The importance of reproductive health led to establish the MSc in reproductive health program in developed country. In Iran, the program has not been offered yet. The aim of this study was to assess educational needs of MSc program in reproductive health.

Methods: This research used Delphi method. Fifteen experts in reproductive health from Iran participated in this study. First, we provided a list of educational needs for every task, then experts confirmed or rejected educational needs and sometimes added new items. In the second round, the experts identified their priorities.

In terms of priority, all means of importance were over the score of three. To avoid repeating educational needs general across every task, we categorized the tasks that had similar educational needs.
