 Introduction: Inadequate advice interferes with students’ achievements of educational and professional goals. The present study was carried out to compare the satisfaction of Shahrekord University of Medical Sciences' students about the performance of academic advisors before and after implementation of the Advisors` Project.

Methods: This cross-sectional study was carried out on 244 students studying in different programs at Shahrekord University of Medical Sciences in two stages at the first semester of 2010-2011 and the first semester of 2011-2012. For data collection, we used a self designed questionnaire including individual and educational information and 10 multiple-choice questions with Likert scale to assess the satisfaction of students from the advisor’ performance.

Results: From the ten items of satisfaction, only "providing access to an advisor" was significant after implementing Advisors` Project in Faculty of Nursing (P=0.01).

Conclusion: It seems that the performance of advisors` project could not provide a satisfactory position for students. Adequate supervision of university students is crusial, proper implementation of the program can support faculty advisors to strengthen their position and help them to improve their supervision skills.
