Introduction: Brucellosis is one of the most common diseases among human and animals that occurs in the acute, sub-acute or chronic. Given the importance of this issue in terms of economic, health and also regarding to the high prevalence of the disease, we decided to determine the students' knowledge about the disease and develop the educational programs to increase their knowledge. Materials & Methods: This study was a cross-sectional study in which 413 students of Kashan University of Medical Sciences were examined. Students were assessed by using a questionnaire containing 10 questions and the analysis of data was performed by SPSS software. Findings: According to this study, the overall mean of knowledge score was 5.07. The knowledge of the students based on two factors (father's education and mother's education) was performed by two-way ANOVA. The mean of the knowledge of student whose mothers had upper the diploma education compared with the mean of the knowledge of the student whose mothers had under the diploma education was not significant (P=0.9). The means of the knowledge based on the fathers' education were also not different (P=0.7). The mean of the knowledge score of those students who were familiar with the brucellosis disease was more than those who were not familiar with the disease. Two-way ANOVA for the knowledge about the brucellosis based on two factors (gender and familiarity with the disease) was performed. Accordingly, between the knowledge of the boys and girls there were no statistically significant differences (P=0.12). Discussion & Conclusion: In spite of the students were studying at the University of Medical Sciences, their knowledge about brucellosis was not satisfactory. This may indicate a lack of training or a lack of attention to the students' educational content. So, a reprogramming action is necessary to educate the students about common diseases.
