The statistical population was all Ph.D., associate and undergraduate students of Gonabad University of Medical Sciences in the academic year of 2017. A sample of 275 people was selected based on randomized, proportional to volume and step by step method. The research instruments were a questionnaire of academic enthusiasm, a questionnaire on knowledge of the future of career and a questionnaire on perceived educational justice. For analyzing data, multivariate regression and Pearson correlation coefficient were used.
Result: The results of regression analysis indicated that 16% of the changes in the variance of academic enthusiasm scores with prediction of educational justice and awareness of the career future were predictable. The results of Pearson correlation coefficient showed that there was a relationship between academic enthusiasm and perception of educational justice (P <0.01) and knowledge of the career future (P <0.01).
