PURPOSE: This study aims to examine the satisfaction of undergraduate medical students with their medical professionalism education. METHODS: Two hundred and one premedical students and 1,287 medical students (from year 1 to 4) participated in a five-point Likert scale survey. There were 27 items in the premedical students' survey and 31 items in the medical students' questionnaire. Statistical analysis including one-way ANOVA was performed. RESULTS: Among the 27 items concerning premedical professionalism education, only six topics scored "average" level. In the survey of medical students only nine items out of 31 were rated "average" which did not reach the satisfactory level. Nine items from the medical students' survey showed significant positive improvements in satisfaction as the academic year increased; however, the changes were not large enough for any of the topics to receive a satisfactory score. CONCLUSION: Overall students were dissatisfied with their professionalism education. The reasons for these results and possible approaches for improving students' satisfaction should be considered in future research.
