The present research evaluated the teaching of treatment hospitals of medical sciences universities in Tehran. The aim of research was a clinical diagnosis on particular nature of medical specialty, sub specialty fields promoting the quality of medical education and offering special services in teaching hospitals in comparison with standard measurements. An effective method in recognizing the strong and weak points of teaching and treatment services in teaching hospitals is choosing the Accreditation Model, that played a great role in this research. The steps to perform the model are as follows: 1) At the beginning, the medical education system criteria was mentioned according to model consisting of five parts: input-process-intermediate output-final input and outcome. The evaluation factors are: 1- Managing, treatment, teaching and research sections. 2- The theoretical, practical and experties of the faculty members. 3- The educational progress of assistants. 4- Resources, facilities, equipment and financial services in teaching of treatment center. 5- The ability to carryout teaching of treatment and clinical projects. 6- Patient satisfaction. 2) To determine if the variables are standard, the national and international documents (teaching standards of Cebec, Canada) were studied to compare the standards to the medical education system in medical hospitals. The viewpoints of board of directors in teaching hospitals were gathered. At last, the final model was devised according to the viewpoints and the final standard confirmed, 96.7% positive votes. 3) To determine the percentage role of evaluation factors, called the basis the investigation forms were filled by the managers of the hospitals according to interview and Delphi technique. The importance of each basis was investigated and confirmed in two stages in teaching hospitals in Tehran and all over Iran, according to the information. 4) According to the standards, many questions were constructed. The board of directors in teaching of treatment sections in every selected hospital determined the rank of each criteria on the hospital where they worked. After gathering the data by the investigator and determining the grades, the following linear-formula will be applied and the criteria to judge a teaching hospital on its credibility will be available. Y=a1x1+a2x2+... akxk. 5) Based on the data collected and the application of the linear formula, the hospitals in the study proved to comply with the accreditation standards.
