Abstract

There is not enough information about the contents of Iranian thesis, their subjects, possible neglected areas, etc. Therefore, analyzing the content of Iranian thesis is essential. The aim of this study is to analyze the content of the medical theses of Hormozgan University of Medical Sciences in the period from 2006 to 2013. Quantitative content analysis was implemented to study all medical thesis which were published in Hormozgan University of Medical Sciences in the period from 2006 to 2013. We used a self-designed checklist that included "date of publication", "subject", "Study design", "sampling method", and "the presence of a Persian or English abstract. Data was analyzed by SPSS software using descriptive statistics tests such as mean and frequency. We analyzed the content of 358 theses. The majority of subjects in the studied theses were related to "internal medicine" (87 24.30%), followed by "pediatric" (6518.15%). The most frequent study design was "descriptive" (15138.21%), followed by "Clinical Trials" (10128.21%) respectively. The most frequently applied sampling method was census (15242.45%, random sampling (15142.17%) and cluster sampling (256.98%), respectively. Researchers in this university should work on the neglected subject areas. The university should encourage medical students to work on thesis with higher quality. We recommend to design and develop a database of theses in the university to be used when necessary.
