The climate of clinical settings is one of the effective factors on the quality of clinical education and students' attitude toward their field of study. This research aims to determine the relationship between the ethical climate of operating rooms and the students’ attitude toward their field of study in hospitals of Tabriz University of Medical Sciences.All medical students in the operating rooms of Tabriz University of Medical Sciences in their second semester during the academic year 2013 - 2014 were entered into this analytic study. In addition to the demographic questionnaire, Olson’s Hospital Ethical Climate Survey and a student attitude questionnaire were used to collect the information. Data were analyzed by the SPSS 18 software using descriptive and analytical statistics methods including chi-square test and Spearman's ordinal correlation coefficient.Most of the students were female (61.4%) and single (86.8%) and the mean of their age was 20.87 ± 1.54. Additionally, 64.9% of the students had a negative perception of the ethical climate in operating rooms, while 51.8% had a positive attitude toward their field of study. Moreover, a significant relationship was found between the ethical climate and attitude of operating room students toward their field of study (P ≤ 0.001, r = 0.56). Despite the negative ethical climate of operating rooms, most of the students had a positive attitude toward their field of study. In view of the direct relationship between these two variables, improvements in the ethical climate of operating rooms and students’ attitude toward their field of study can positively affect their future career.
