Background and purpose: Healthy lifestyle is an important factor in prevention of chronic diseases. The health of medical students is highly influential due to their fundamental role in every health system. In this study, the health-promoting lifestyle and its determinants were evaluated in medical, dental, and pharmacy students.
Materials and methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted in 650 students using stratified sampling in Kerman, Iran 2016. The health-promoting lifestyle profile (HPLP-II) was used and data was analyzed applying univariate and multivariate linear regression analysis in SPSS.
Results: The mean score for health-promoting lifestyle was 104.93±22.9 which had no significant relationship with gender, marital status, living condition, and the education levels. There was a significant association between the field of study and the mean score for health-promoting lifestyle, nutrition, spiritual growth, interpersonal relationship, and stress management (P<0.005).
Conclusion: The health-promoting lifestyle is believed to be inappropriate in medical, dental and pharmacy students in Kerman University of Medical Sciences.
