  Introduction : Evidence suggests that unprofessional behavior is a common problem among medical students. The purpose of this study was to evaluate pre-conditions and barriers of establishment of professional medical education from perspective of faculty members of Qazvin University of Medical Sciences.

  Methods: This phenomenological qualitative study was conducted in 1392 with participation of eighteen faculty members of Qazvin University of Medical Sciences (who were targeted among 130-faculty member). Participants in three focus groups explained their beliefs, perceptions and expectations about the training of professional in the form of questions such as "How do students learn professionalism?" and "What challenges do you face in training your professional obligations?" We used content analysis for data analysis process.

  Results: The faculty members mention ed learning experience before entering the university, structured teaching in the school and learning professional role models as main factors affecting the learning of medical professional. Research participants believed that the teachers’ role modeling and feedback are most influential factor in professional learning, but trainees didn’t accept their teachers as role models. From the perspective of faculty, p professionalism is a multidimensional issue and has been a affected by economic, social and political factors. Also a hybrid approach was also proposed for training the professionalism with the major components of theoretical and clinical training.

  Conclusion: The results show that the current formal programms of medical schools in the field of professional training is not enough and a focus on specific activities is proposed to improve teaching professionalism including an approach to role modeling. The approach could be provided with an intentional demonstration of professional behavior during the educational courses.
