Introduction: The professional ethics is the integral part of all dimensions of providing health care services. In recent years, promotion of the professional ethics among medical sciences students becomes very important particularly the ones which are directly in contact with patients. This study aimed to define the relationship between clinical experiences of the operating theater students and the level of adherence to professional ethics.
Methods and Materials: The descriptive-analytical study was carried out among 87 undergraduate students of operating theater. The sampling was done by census and included all of the 4th, 6th and 8th semester undergraduate students of operating theater which met the criteria to involve in the study. The data were collected by the standard questionnaire of professional ethics and the demographic information questionnaire. Then, they were analyzed by SPSS software version 21.
Results: 87 students were participated in this descriptive-analytical study. 35 of them were men (40.2%) and 51 of them were women (58.6%). In this research, the average age was estimated as 22.51 years. The results indicated that there was a significant relationship between the semester, and as its consequence, the clinical experience of the students and professional ethics (p = 0.011). The results also showed the significant relationship between age and professional ethics (p = 0.020).There was no relationship between ethnicity, average mark, sex and professional ethics.
