Objectives: The present study aimed to adapt the strategic plans of medical sciences universities to the components of the third millennium universities.
Materials and Methods: This is a cross-sectional study. We included all the faculty members of top 5 universities of Tehran Province in Iran to our study. . To collect data, a reliable and valid researcher-made questionnaire was developed based on the characteristics of higher education institutions in the third millennium (CVI> 0.79, CVR> 0.62, α = 0.88). Statistical analysis was by SPSS.
Results: Highest mean score of the population's attitude was related to the universities' vision (mean=3.44). Moreover, the highest mean score (components of university headquarters) of the attitude was in environmental indicators (3.53) and the lowest mean score was depicted in administrative and financial indicators (3.4). There was a significant difference between the attitudes of faculty members (P<0.01).
Conclusion: Concerning the accordance of mission and headquarter activities, medical sciences universities were somewhat far from the third millennium universities and they must be accountable for quality of their actions; and they need to show their merits, and by acquiring necessary certificates and quality assurance they have to work in order to promote themselves.
