Background: The aim of medical education before graduation is to train qualified physicians who have the knowledge, skills and attitudes that can provide qualified services, who can improve themselves continuously, acquire problem-solving skills and have clinical competence. We would like to determine how the interns feel about their practice and knowledge and just before the field. Methods: A questionnaire was developed by the medical education specialist according to the curriculum. Every skill was majored from 1(insufficient)-10(sufficient) points. The questionnaire was tested with 10 students. The forms made of 25 questions were sent by Google forms and 172 (51%) interns replied. Ethical approval was taken from the university committee. Results: Of the participants 62.3% was female and 61.1% was born in 1995. 18.1% of the students repeated the class. 29.2% of interns gave a score of 5 and below to the question of gaining the ability to make the diagnosis of the patient. 40.3% didn’t gain the ability to make decisions on both the therapy and the tests; %93 didn’t gain the implementation of intrauterine device skill, 20.9% didn’t gain the ability to suture, %15.3 didn’t gain the ability of CPR. 40.3% thought that they’re not clinically sufficient. Conclusion: The medical education and the curriculum might be revised and the theoric burden on students can be reduced. Moreover pratical skills can be thought on more simulators and simulated patients.
