Background and Purpose: Given the role of religious teachings in the health and education of students as created and qualified workforce, the investigation of the sources of these teachings is a matter of paramount importance. Regarding this, the present study was conducted to investigate the source of religious teachings in students of Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences (MAZUMS), Sari, Iran.
Materials and Methods: This study was conducted on 160 students studying at all faculties of MAZUMS in 2016. The data were collected using a researcher-made questionnaire. Data analysis was performed in SPSS software (version 20) using inferential statistics, including Chi-Square and Fischer's exact tests.
Results: According to the results, family played the role of the first, second, third, and fourth source of information in 92.5%, 4.4%, 1.9%, and 1.3% of the students, respectively. In addition, mosques were the first, second, third, and fourth sources of information for 1.3%, 21.3%, 18.1%, and 58.8% of the participants, respectively. The results of the Fisher's exact test showed that the ratio of choosing an information source for religious teachings in the second, third, and fourth priorities considerably varied across different colleges (P<0.05).
Conclusion: As the findings indicated, 92.5% and 58.8% of the students considered family and mosque as the first sources of information for religious teachings, respectively. Consequently, it is necessary for the families to make proper plans targeted toward making religious sites, such as mosques, more attractive for the younger generation.
