Abstract

Student's feedback is one of the most important considerations in health profession quality management. One of the most popular approaches for receiving feedback from students within individual institutions is the Student Satisfaction Approach. The aim of this study was to measure the satisfaction with educational services among health profession students and the determinants of satisfaction. Cross-sectional study was conducted in the main campus of the High Institute of Health Sciences in Yemen, including its eight branches. A self-directed questionnaire was distributed to 327 students who were randomly selected. The participation rate was very high: 94% (309/327); 57.9% were male and 42.1% were female. Overall, 59% of students were totally satisfied, 35% were partially satisfied; however only 6% of them were not satisfied. Results showed that personal development was the highest component of satisfaction among students, while the research subjects showed less-satisfaction with the learning resources. The findings provide valuable insights and offer recommendations for improvement in terms of quality management in health profession education.
