Observation of ethical principles by health care organizations managers can direct and control human resources. Moreover, organizational commitment is a type of emotional and fanatical dependence on the values and goals of an organization that can help preparing an appropriate background for employee development. Therefore, this research is aimed to determine the relationship between management ethics and organizational commitment among employees of the Tehran University of Medical Sciences. This is a cross-sectional, descriptive and analytical research conducted among the headquarters employees of the Tehran University of Medical Sciences. One hundred and fifty employees were selected as a research sample using the Cochran formula. The research tools were two types of standard questionnaires including organizational commitment and principles of ethics questionnaires that were completed by the employees. The response rate was 86%. The collection and analysis of data were performed by SPSS software. The results of this research showed that most managers of TUMS headquarters observed the principles of ethics and also most of the employees had a high level of organizational commitment. However, organizational commitment of TUMS employees does not appear to be influenced by managers’ observance of ethical principles, and it seems that other factors like organizational culture or organizational health could be correlated with employees’ organizational commitment. The authors recommend preparation of ethical charters and avoidance of instrumental usage of ethical principles by the managers in order to direct the employees to follow ethical guidelines and create a unified culture within the organization.
