Background and Aim: Different disciplines of medical science have a close connection with the health of the public. Lack of awareness of the field of study and disinterest to it will have consequences on the educational and health system. While recognizing the field of study and interest in it increases the sense of responsibility and efficiency of individuals in the provision of services. The purpose of this study was to determine the students' interest in their field of study and the factors influencing it from the viewpoint of students of Zahedan University of Medical Sciences.
Materials and Methods:  In this descriptive-analytical study, 210 students from Zahedan University of Medical Sciences were randomly selected. The method of collecting information was field-based and using a valid questionnaire, including 21 questions (14 items with Likert Triple Scale). Data were entered into SPSS software (Version.20). The confidence level was considered as 0.05.
Results: The average interest rate of students in their field of study was 68.3 ± 27.3. 60.3% of the women were female and the rest were male The mean age of the subjects was 21.2±3.3 years. It was found that there was a significant relationship between the level of interest of individuals with marital status (P <0.0001) and previous knowledge of subjects when choosing a course (P <0.0001).
Conclusion:  The results of this study showed that the students' interest in their field of study was relatively good, but less than half of them had chosen their field of study without prior knowledge.
