 Finding: Overall, 91.3% and 80% had pas- sed epidemiology and biostatistics courses, respectively. 46.8% of the participants were medical students, 31.9% physicians and 21.3% faculty members. More than half of them stated that they did not read any jou-rnals regularly. Mean score of knowledge, attitude and confidence to biostatistics of participants were 24.4816.32, 62.809.54 and 12.702.59, respectively.
