Background and objective: Despite the prominent role of the research phase in the graduation process of doctoral students in the allowed years, less has been done to evaluate this phase and the reasons for its prolongation and postponement in the graduation process of students. The aim of this study was to determine the reasons for postponing the graduation of specialized doctoral students based on their experience in the implementation of the research stage.
Methods: The present study is quantitative. The statistical population included 127 PhD students and graduates of Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences between 2020- 2022, who had not defended their thesis during the permitted academic years and were selected by census sampling. Demographic questionnaire and PREQ (Postgraduate research experience questionnaire) were sent to them, and finally 75 questionnaires entered the study. Data were analyzed in SPSS-21 software using descriptive statistical methods.
Findings: In this study, 68% of the participants were women and 32% were men. Most of the respondents had a favorable experience of all the sub-components of the supervision dimension. On the contrary, the majority of the participants had unfavorable experiences in the sub-components of the fields of research development of the faculty. The experiences of the majority of respondents in developing scientific skills during the research period were optimal.
Conclusion: It is necessary to allocate funds for research, especially in the field of graduate education, to improve the conditions and fields of research development of the faculty, as well as the level of its infrastructure and financial support for research projects in the country's higher education system.
