Background and purpose: Evaluation is one of the most important bases of promoting the quality of education. It is very important to know the attendings� and students� viewpoints as evaluated and evaluator groups. So in this study the viewpoint of the attendings and students of School of Medicine of Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences (MUMS) about the students evaluation of the attendings, were studied. Materials and Methods: In this descriptive-cross sectional study, all faculty members (FM) and students of the school of Medicine were included in the study by census sampling. Data collection was done using a questionnaire including demographic questions and educational variables, the FM and students viewpoint about manner of evaluation (time, the way of distributing the forms and the explanation), the student's features in evaluation (awareness, truthfulness and puposes) and the instrument of evaluation (questionnaires and items). Results: 345 individuals (95 FM and 250 students) took part in this study. The manner of evaluation (time, distribution and explanations) to most of FMs' and students� opinion was appropriate. About student's awareness and truthfulness in filling in the questionnaires a considerable percentage of FMs (20-40) had a negative opinion and over half of them had a negative attitude about the whole process of evaluation. About the items of theoretical, practical and clinical questionnaires, while the students laid stress on aspect such as: being a teacher and concepts transferring, on attendings opinion these aspects were less important. Conclusion: To most FMs and students opinion, the manner of evaluation is appropriate but a considerable negative attitude exists among attendings about students� awareness and truthfulness in filling in the questionnaire. The priorities of evaluation are different in these two groups� point if view.
