Introduction: Family health graduations are one of the most important health care personnel workers. Because mothers and children health have been monitored by them, their abilities of upgrading health, saving and returning population health - if it combined with appropriate, training, and efficacy performance, are very effective. Universities of medical sciences because of their direct contact to human are very important places, and so each and every person and also societies' health depends on their activities in different job fields. Present research reviewed on to exploit theoretical and practical teaching in view of points of family health technicians, graduated from Health Faculty (2000-2001).

Methods: Present research was a descriptive study. The research community was 76 people of three previous daytime, and two evening time of pervious graduated, who are presently employed. Data collecting tools were a package questioners based on ministry's approved guideline, which its validity and reliability have been after completing by ten graduated confirmed by specialist (research group) and it had more than 90% validity. Four applied index were: theoretical courses, subject observation in classes, and practical program during education, ability to perform in practical job environment. For each index four grades (excellent, good, average, and poor) have been considered. Data was calculated by SPSS and three dimensional statistical softwares.

Results: Data showed that hearing had the highest score, correct answer to the questions gained in ten studied subjects had maximum 96.3% (73 people), and minimum 67.88 %( 51 people).Observation of practical observation in for immunization with 69.52 %( 53 people) had highest and for demographic .course with 5.5(4people) had lowest scores. Practical courses during the students study period for immunization gained maximum 81% (62 people), and for demographic course minimum scores12.37 %(10people). Ability for practical work in post graduating future for immunization had highest score76.1% (58 people) and for demographic course had lowest scores 17.32% (13 people). Average correct answer in this study gained lowest scores.

Conclusions: Comparing to practical courses theoretical teaching had better scores in health family courses. Practical works under facilitator's supervision and independent of them have more important values, and students evaluated ther abilities in practical courses such as immunization, school health, and administration and supervision on health centers shown much better these which are their main duties in their future job. Due to upgrading the family health graduates in their future practical works we suggest that new guidelines should be considered by teacher precisely and workshops have to be done to gain skill, and it is not sufficient only considering participating in classroom but it must considered a number of acceptable practical work to pass exams.
