Materials and Methods: The study was a descriptive study, which evaluates the quality of the learning environment - the teaching of cardiology residents in a full-scale way. 33 people were included in the study. The questionnaire consisted of two sections of demographic information and 50 questions in five areas of learning, professors, student perception of their academic ability, educational atmosphere, student perception of their social conditions. Face validity was determined by medical education specialists and its reliability was 0.83 in Cronbach's alpha. Data was entered into SPSS-25 software and analyzed by descriptive methods and Independent t-test.

In comparison with the educational groups, there was a significant difference in the attitude toward the teacher (p<0.01) and the individual's attitude toward their academic ability (p<0.01) between the second and third year residents. This was relatively favorable with a tendency towards positive. In comparison with the educational groups, there was a significant difference in the attitude toward the teacher (p <0.01) and the individual's attitude toward their academic ability (p <0.01) between the second and third year residents.
