Introduction: Nowadays, electronic learning is not a choice but a necessity for higher education. This study aims at investigating readiness of faculty members of Iranian west medical universities in application of e-learning in learning processes. Materials & Methods: Running a stratified sampling technique, 140 faculty members of Iranian west medical universities were selected and their readiness for electronic learning application was assessed by a researcher-developed questionnaire. The reliability of the instrument turned out as acceptable using Cronbach’s Alpha coefficient. Hypotheses were tested utilizing t-test and one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA). Findings: Results of the study revealed that the respondents mostly believed in the effectiveness of e-learning environments in learning process. Further, those who had had abroad studies opportunities believed in the effectiveness of such environments, had knowledge and skill on these areas and used the environments more than others. Discussion & Conclusion: Providing opportunities for academic staff to experience learning and teaching process abroad and attending the e-learning conferences and workshops, especially for those who have been graduated more than ten years ago, would persuade them to utilize e-learning environments
