Introduction: The transfer and utilization of research evidence in health promotion have caught a great attention in recent years. R-esearch has been the means of material and spiritual progress for human being. Health research is prerequisite for the enhancement of health and treatment maintenance and plays a pivotal role in medical sciences. This study was done to determine the kho-wledge and attitude of students toward re-search in Isfahan University of Medical Sciences. Materials & Methods: This study was a descriptive-analytical survey assessing kho-wledge and attitude of students toward rese-arch in 2012. A total number of 256 stud-ents were recruited in this study using a ran-domly sampling method. Data were collec-ted using a reasercher-designed question-naire. Obtained data analyzed by SPSS18 software and two categories of descriptive and inferential statistical methods (Chi-Sq-ure and Fisher exact tests). Findings: The results of the study indicated that 64.4 % of participants had a poor knowledge toward research and 63.2 % of them had a moderate knowledge toward re-search.There was a significant relation bet-ween knowledge and educational level am-ongst students, so that the students with higher educational level had more know-ledge regarding research (P<0.05). Also, the attitude of students had a significant rela-tion with their educational level and reside-nce (P<0.05). So that students with higher educational level and resident in dormitory had a better attitude toward research. Discussion & Conclusion: Changings in the educational system to meet the needs of stu-dents may be necessary. It should pay more attention than before to the courses such as practical research methods to improve the practical implementation of research, to pr-omote students' attitudes toward research and to provide the process of collaboration and necessary support among students.
