Abstract

Background and purpose: Spiritual health has an important role in different dimensions of health. It affects student's educational progress and enhances their life expectancy. Holy Quran has emphasized on the role of spiritual health on human's worldly and otherworldly happiness. This study aimed to survey the level of spiritual health in students in Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences. Materials and methods: In a descriptive-analytical study 452 students in Mazandaran University of Medical Science were selected by stratified random sampling in 2013-2014. Data was collected by a researcher-made questionnaire consisting of 36 questions concerning Quran teachings. Cronbach's coefficient alpha for the reliability of questionnaire was 0.88. Results: The results showed a significant association between cognitive dimension (4.07+0.45), emotional (3.89+0.64), and behavioral dimensions (3.935+0.60). Significant relationships were found between spiritual health and field of study, level, gender, and marital status. But there was no significant relationship between the scores achieved for spiritual health and age. Conclusion: The students in this study were found with a relatively high level of spiritual health in cognitive and emotional dimensions, and a poor level in understanding the purpose of life (in cognitive dimension) and behavioral dimension. The authorities responsible for enhancing spiritual health in universities should pay serious attention to the factors associated with that.
