 Introduction: Higher education is a driving force in many societies. Medical graduates have a key role in public health and community medicine. Adherence to professional ethics is crucial to achieve these goals. . This study aims to evaluate academics' adherence to professional ethics in Shahid Sadoughi University (SSU) of Medical Science from the students'point of view.

Methods: In this explanatory study a questionnaire was completed by 160 students of Medical, Dentistry, Public Health, Nursing, Paramedical and Nursing and Midwifery schools of SSU. In order to assess teaching effectiveness, we considered components of the methodology, interactive relationship with students, scholarship, monitoring student's development, classroom management and doing appropriate assessment. A questionnaire containing 30 questions of the relevant components was designed and its transparency was validated. The questionnaire was randomly distributed among students.

Results: 70 percent of the students believed that the SSU academics have distinctive character, respect the sanctity of the classroom, do not gossip about their colleagues, are trained in teaching, are confident and do their best educate students. More than half believed that the teachers have effective teaching features. Students' main concerns were lacking compilation of related books, uniform method of teaching crossdsciplines, paying less attention to students' questions, not spending sufficient time for students and careless evaluation.

Conclusion: Most of SSU academics adhere to moral and scientific standards. However, students suggest them to pay more attention and should spend more time for them.
