In Iran total fertility rate was increased from 5.9 children during years 54 to 56 to 6.3 children in years 63 to 68. After establishing different activities toward birth control and family planning from 1368 and other effective factors fertility rate showed a decreasing pattern and reached almost 2 children. Among all these effective factors we could mention family planning, though Ministries of Health and Science and researches are responsible to create a course named knowing different population and family planning. The aim of this study was analyzing student’s idea toward this new course, so we could use its results in training programs.
