Aim: Awareness of the nature of the field of study makes students act purposefully along the path of education and anticipate career prospects. This study aimed to investigate the knowledge and attitude of health information technology students towards their field of study and career prospects at Hormozgan University of Medical Sciences.
Methods: This was an applied descriptive-analytical study in 2018. All the 68 Health Information Technology undergraduate students whose entrance date was 2015-2018 were interviewed. A valid and reliable researcher-made questionnaire was used with Likert scale to record students' opinions in four areas of knowledge and attitude towards the field of study, knowledge and attitude towards the career prospects. The data were analyzed using SPSS26 with descriptive/analytical statistics such as Independent T-Test and ANOVA.
Results: In the four areas, the highest score was related to attitude towards career prospects and the lowest was related to knowledge of the field of study. Considering the variables of knowledge and attitude towards the field of study and career prospects based on demographic variables, there was a significant relationship between diploma mean grade and the knowledge about the field of study (p-value= 0.039). There was also a significant correlation between knowledge and attitude towards the field of study with a correlation coefficient of 0.657(p-value<0.001).
Conclusion: With the significant relationship between knowledge and attitude, acquiring the right knowledge based on actual capabilities of the field can improve the students’ level of attitude.
