Conclusions According to association between successfully completions of training in emergency medicine and self-assessment questionnaire, it seems current criteria for judgment passing emergency medicine rotation is valid as well as we recommended using self-assessment for evaluating validity of such testes. Background It has been emphasized that medical students should be competent in the procedural skills considered crucial to handle emergency situations .
Also, there is a need for every medical school to provide the valuable experience for medical students who handle emergencies as they arise in daily practice .
Since, the main goal of teaching emergency medicine EM is to increase medical students' knowledge and expertise about important skills such as resuscitation, general procedural skills and to improve the perception of the emergency environment as a specialty . In medical schools, students are required to demonstrate clinical proficiency in their educational experience in EM.
It seems that the self-assessment method is a useful tool for predicting the performance and self-confidence of medical students  Studies indicate that self-assessment has many potential benefits, including improving the academic achievement, reflecting on the learning process and promoting a deeper learning approach and encouraging medical students to become life-long learners  , . Meanwhile, it's important to have multiple sources of evidence same as self-assessment results for supporting score-based inferences and for validity of the criteria used to judge whether a medical student who pass have greater ER skills and confidence when compared to the ones who fail the rotation.
As mentioned in the literature review, many studies have addressed medical students' self-confidence, experience and attitude toward the EM rotation  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  however, to the best of our knowledge, very little was found in the literature regarding EM medical students' perceived mastery and self-confidence of their EM skills by self-assessment technique to realign and enhance an emergency training course.
According to the importance of the subject, the main goal of this study is evaluating validity of current criteria for judgment passing ER rotation among internee medical students by self-assessment method.
Our assumption in this study was that if medical students pass an EM rotation exams and spent more time in EM training that they will have better confidence and skills when it comes to managing emergency situations when compared to their peers who failed the rotation or spent less time on training in self-assessment test. As a result of this research, it is possible that the curriculum for the emergency medicine course in Tehran University of Medical Sciences, one of the largest medical universities in Iran country, was redesigned and improved.
Methods This was a cross-sectional study. The ED of these hospitals is staffed by a team including faculty, residents, and interns. The faculty members supervise the care of patients, who are assigned to residents and interns. They receive an approval by the faculty before ordering any tests or performing any procedures.
Interns must take at least a mandatory four-week EM internship in their fourth year of clinical phase. Participant The study population consisted of all emergency internees of the two educational hospitals.
A list of students was prepared for this purpose and participants were selected randomly. Ganti L. Your unconditional belief in me, your confidence in my success, your never ending patience and generosity — you lead a life of great achievements with utmost humility.

Each procedure follows a standardized format, beginning with keywords, a definition if appropriate, indications, and contraindica- tions. These are followed by materials and medications, often accompanied by a photograph of the specific equipment or setup. The procedure itself is numbered rather than bulleted, high- lighting the sequence of steps. Photographs are placed where the relevant information is encountered in the text rather than at the end.
Every procedure also lists complications. Finally, there is a section on pearls and pitfalls, gleaned from the collective experience of the contribu- tors in addition to traditional teachings.
