ABSTRACT

Objectives: The aim of this study is to determine the knowledge level of students at an university faculty of medicine regarding Zika Virus Desease (ZVD) as well as effective factors of the disease. Materials and methods: This study is a descriptive cross-sectional study that was conducted with students in an university faculty of medicine. The total number of students was 1380 at the time of the study. The sample size was calculated as 301 using the formula for a minimum sample size under the condition with a known-population size. Both stratified sampling and simple random sampling were used as sampling methods. Each correct answer was given 5 points, and 20 questions were about ZVD. Final scores were recognised as the ‗ZVD knowledge score‘. A Student t-test, one-way Anova and Bonferroni post-hoc test were used to compare the groups. Results: The mean age of individuals was 21.8 ± 2.3 (min–max: 18–36), and 55.8% of individuals who participated in our research were males. The ZVD score in the 6th class was 47.58 ± 21.86 and was 29.64 ± 26.04 in the 1st class, which was significant (p < 0.05). Conclusions: There was no significant difference between genders regarding ZVD scores. In the 6th class, ZVD scores were significantly higher than those in the 1st class. Students learned more about diseases as the educational year progressed. The knowledge level about ZVD is low according to our results.

Keywords: Zika virus, Medical Students, Knowledge.
