Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the knowledge, behavior and attitudes among medical students regarding sexual and reproductive health. Besides providing health care at tertiary level for the patients, Clinic for Gynaecology and Obstetrics in Novi Sad has another important role which is education of future health care professionals.  Design and methods:  The study consisted of two phases. In first phase, survey was conducted among 355 first-year-medical-students about their knowledge about reproductive health and topics they would like to learn about. Second phase considered five workshops in sexuality and reproductive health, prepared according to the interests and needs of students. Results: Results of the survey showed insufficient knowledge of students in sexually transmitted diseases (STD), HPV infection, use of oral contraception etc. Information about reproductive health students get mostly through the mass-media (40%), from friends and family (20%). Only 45.0% of interviewed students knew that Papanicolaou test is used for early diagnosis of cervical carcinoma, 37.2% thought it was used for detection of HVP infection, and 9.9% for detection of other STD-s. Student who were sexually active used different methods of contraception: preservative in 29.0%, interrupted intercourse in 9.5%, in 8.5% students combined different methods, only 6.5% used oral contraception, and 4.2% did not use any contraceptive method. Although 92% students knew that regular visit to gynaecologist should be paid at least ones a year, only 6.2% addressed to the gynecological counseling center. Conclusions: Results of this survey represent general attitudes, prejudice and knowledge of population in reproductive age, and indicate great need for education, changing attitudes and correction of prejucides. This could be done by implementing sexual education in regular school system and providing trainings for peer educators, especially among medical students.
