Background and aims: The ability to communicate is a basic skill for human beings and some people in this area are more capable than the others.

The validity and reliability of questionnaires were assessed in good level, through conducting a pilot study. The data was analyzed using SPSS.
Results: The results showed that all newly-arrived residents' satisfaction of patient-physician communication workshops is above the cutoff point (m=4.26±.49). Of the variables studied the greatest satisfaction were teaching methods (4.52±0.26), presentations (m=4.32±.36) and environment and training facilities (m=4.22±0.23). The survey of satisfaction showed no significant statistical difference between the assistants by different fields (p=0.1).
