Introduction: lack of attention to training medical students in visiting patients and remedial management is one of the big challenges in clinical education. Models and current patterns were used in medical education is one of the reason of unprofitable situation in this regards. Now, department –based pattern is presented in medical education of Iran consequently, students couldn’t enter in remedial process independently. The aim of this research was to study the students viewpoints about student-center ambulatory education based on SNAPPS model training.

Methods: this is a semi –empirical study hold in post- test method for one group. A researcher made questionnaire in four domains was used for evaluating students viewpoints after training with SNAPPS model in 4 continuous terms. Statistical population included all intern and stager medical students (106) training in infectious wards in 4 half year of education .Data were analyzed by using descriptive statistic criteria and T-Test through SPSS software .

Results: 98% of students believed that SNAPPS model leads to increase knowledge as well as improving attitude and performance were declared by 85.3% and 90.2% of students respectively 80.4% prefer SNAPPS model to traditional and current education.

There is no significant differences among students viewpoints about increasing knowledge and improving attitude but there is difference in skill and preference between male and female students(P <0.05).

Findings show that there is no significant differences between students viewpoints on effect of SNAPPS model and the year of education, but there is significant differences in preferences of SNAPPS model between stagers and inter students (P <0.05).

Conclusion: regarding the findings of this research about quality of ambulatory education, it is necessary patterns which involve students directly in remedial and clinical training  were used also application of SNAPPS model as a student-centered pattern is suggested.
