Progress in medicine is inevitably dependent on Anatomy as it plays a pivotal role in this regard. Therefore, the aim of this study was to examine the effects of factors promoting the instruction of anatomy course in Ahvaz Jundishapur University of medical sciences. A researcher-made questionnaire contains 17 items including the biological sciences, items impacting on learning anatomy lessons and teaching method. Afterwards, among doctrine medicine students at 1390-91 year of study only 202 students as statistical population answered the distributed questionnaire and then formally took part in this study. The validity of the questionnaire was confirmed by reviewing the papers and considering the comments of anatomy professors; and its reliability was also verified by calculating Cronbach's alpha (0.807). Then, data were analyzed by SPSS (Version 20) and Mann-Whithney test. Lecturer personality, quality and quantity of cadavers and maquettes, summarizing the lesson at the end, expressing clinical notes, drawing the schematic figures had significant effects on learning anatomy course among these students (P<0.05). In addition, girls believed that the variables like presentation by PowerPoint slides, drawing the schematic figures, summarizing the lesson on the table, presenting a summery at the end of class affected considerably the learning of anatomy course (P<0.05); they firmly believed in these enhancing factors; and there was a significant difference while compared with the boys’ views. As a result, by considering the effects of these factors in teaching, anatomy lecturers could enhance the level of anatomy learning in the students.
