The present research aimed to examine the relationship between hardiness and assertiveness with academic achievement in students of Medical Sciences. The research was conducted in a correlational framework. The population included a total number of 270 students who were randomly selected from Alborz University of Medical Sciences. The students have enrolled in 2014-2015 academic year. Afterwards, the applicants were requested to fill in the Ahvaz Psychological Hardiness Questionnaire (AHI), and the Assertion Inventory (Gambrill and Richey 1975). In addition, their grade point average (GPA) were recorded. The data were analysed through correlation coefficient and path analysis. Results showed that psychological hardiness had direct (r=0.243) and indirect effect through assertiveness (r=0.069) on academic achievement.It can be concluded that there existed an overlap between assertiveness components (as commitment, control and challenge) and assertiveness in individuals. Furthermore, psychological hardiness in students can facilitate the learning process for them.
