BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Resistive economy (self-contained economy) is a way to circumvent sanctions against experiencing sanctions. Universities are mostly the pioneers in this regard. The aim of this study was to determine the knowledge, attitude and practice of medical sciences students about resistive economy. METHODS: This descriptive study was conducted among a group of medical, dental and paramedical sciences students in two parts during winter and spring 2013. Individuals participated in the research through simple sampling.The data were collected by means of a tailor-made data collection sheet including personal and resistive economy questions. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistical indexes and Chi square test by SPSS16. FINDINGS: In part A, among 250 participants, the findings indicated that 60% of them were female, 11% were familiar with resistive economy, and 9 % did some measures about resistive economy. Thirty six percent of students (89 persons) found themselves responsible. According to their opinions, people, authorities and mass media are more responsible than the others. Chi square test results showed that there was a significant difference between males and females regarding their awareness and responsibility of resistive economy (p<0.05). In part B, the majority of participants (more than 60%) were satisfied for expression about the resistive economy as a social subject, in the classrooms. This way, caused them to think about this subject. CONCLUSION: The limitation of knowledge, attitude and practice of medical sciences students about resistive economy implies that the university should have proper programs in order to increase their information and participations in social issues.
