Abstract

Introduction: Training needs assessment is the first step in implementation and development of educational programs. The aim of this study was to determine the educational needs of education experts in Kerman University of Medical Sciences. Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted in Kerman University of Medical Sciences in 2015. The study sample included all education experts (N=45). A valid and reliable questionnaire was used to collect data. In order to analyze data, descriptive statistics (mean and standard deviation) and inferential statistics (Pearson and ANOVA) were applied. SPSS version 21 was used for data analysis. Results: Findings showed that regarding technical, conceptual and human skills, the educational needs of experts were over the average level. There was not a significant difference between years of experience and age. Conversely, we could observe a significant difference between type of employment and educational needs (F=3.43, p=0.43). Conclusion: Education experts need to participate in training courses regarding technical, perceptual and human skills. This is more prominent about human skills. In order to enhance knowledge and skills of education experts, we suggest holding educational courses for education experts.
