Results: According to the results, mean (±SD) of supervision on thesis, scientific skill development, research bases, skill development of research and thesis assessing process were 3.31(±0.95), 3.42(±0.71), 2.26(±0.80), 3.37(±0.70), and 3.47(±0.92), respectively. The mean score of research bases was significantly less than others’ (P= 0.0001). The mean score of female students’ satisfaction of research bases and developing research skill was significantly higher than male students’ (P= 0.026 and 0.04 respectively). Conclusion: The results of this study revealed that the lowest students’ satisfaction belonged to “scientific seminar planning”, “financial support of scientific activities” and “scientific and research atmosphere” all belonged to research bases.
