The aim of this study was to report the decisions and advices of the academicians of Adnan Menderes University Medical Faculty on the organization of new Practice and Research Hospital building.


The study was a cross-sectional, descriptive research. In the first part, the demographic properties and education and practice carriers of the academics was noted while in the second part their decisions on organization of the new hospital building was questioned. The data was analyzed by SPSS 10.0 forWindows program.


The mean ages of the 78 (49 male, 29 female) academics was 43.0 ±6.2 years. The mean carrier periods of medical doctors (n=77) was 19.44±5.25 years and 16 of them (20.3%) had experience on hospital management. Majority of the participants (about ~70-87%) approved the idea of taking into consideration the decisions of the other team mates such as nurses and pharmacists and also (75.6%) suggested the formation of multiple organization subgroups. While 65.8% of the participants were positive about contributing to the organization studies individually, 67.1% stated that their clinical department should be represented. On the distribution of hospital resources among the clinical departments; the criteria such as, Patient-work potential, Hospital incomes/profits, and Predominance in education as well as Scientific activities were emphasized as important. Other hospitals' organization models were advised to be looked into by 76.9% of the participants.


Our hospital's aim is at least, to duplicate its capacity in its new building. The participants of this study indicated that the new building should serve not only as a university hospital for education and research but also as hospital for public healthcare with high quality and performance.We believe, the suggestions of the academics in the light of their training and experience will contribute to a better organizational process for our hospital.
