Introduction: Educational evaluation has an important role in decision making to find better educational systems and advance educational goals. Accordingly, this study was conducted to evaluate the satisfaction of medical students with education in the emergency department of the hospital. Materials and Methods: This study was a descriptive, analytical and cross-sectional study. The study population consisted of internship medical students who were included in the study by convenience sampling method. Data were collected by a researcher-made questionnaire that included two sections of demographic information and specialized questions (related to satisfaction).Finally, the data were analyzed using SPSS version 18. Results: The highest level of students 'satisfaction with professors was in the items of discipline, creating interest in students and providing the necessary clinical training by professors, while the lowest level of satisfaction was linked to professors' treatment of students. Their level of satisfaction with the nurses was poor. Students' satisfaction with the facilities was good, but they were not very satisfied with the educational and welfare facilities. The highest level of satisfaction of residents was easy access and disciplineof residents and the lowest level of satisfaction was related to creating interest in students and appropriate behavior. There was no statistically significant relationship between the gender of emergency department students and their satisfaction with professors (P = 0.271), nurses (P = 0.974), residents (P = 0.135) and emergency department (P = 0.165). No statistically significant relationship was found between students' age and their satisfaction with professors (P = 0.428), residents (P = 0.213) and emergency department (P = 0.861). A statistically significant relationship was found between the age of interns and their satisfaction with emergency department nurses (P = 0.009). The grade point averageof all students was not significantly related to their satisfaction with professors (P = 0.270), nurses (P = 0.571), and emergency department (P = 0.214). However, there was a statistically significant relationship between the total grade point average of students and their level of satisfaction with residents (P = 0.003). Conclusion: The level of students' satisfaction with the educational situation was reported to be moderate, but the situation of student was found to be far from ideal.
