Abstract:  
ABSTRACT Background and Aim: Plan of integration of the schools of medicine and health systems was approved in 1985. Considering the importance of the opinion the faculty members on achieving success on this issue, we decided to perform this study. Material and Methods: We used a questionnaire consisted of 27 questions in various fields. Also the questions were categorized in the education, research, treatment, health and social fields. After completing the questionnaire, score of every question was determined. According to demographic information of the participants, scores of the different fields and also between different fields were analyzed by means of ANOVA, Friedman and paired T test. Results: From the viewpoint of the faculty members, achievement of the goals of integration on the average was 52.37±1.07 (Mean ± SEM) percent of the maximum scores. The highest scores belonged to health services and health indicators (59.87% ±1.21) and the least scores were related to research facilities and activities and social purposes of integration plan(49.19% ± 1.20) ( P=0.0001). Conclusion: From the viewpoint of the faculty members, success in achieving integration plan goals is still far from ideal state. Success of this plan in the health field was significantly higher than that of education and treatment fields. Also the success of this plan in the research and social fields (such as changing the sociological insight of the graduates and faculty members) was significantly lower, compared with the other fields. These differences may be due to a failure in the current system to achieve some of its goals. Similar studies on this subject, in other centers are recommended.
