Introduction: The present study aims at investigating the hidden curriculum indicators in Mazandaran Medical Sciences University (Sari’s Para-medical school) from the perspective of the university students. Methods: This study has been conducted on a study population comprised of Sari’s Para-medical school (n=217) during the academic year of 2016-2017. The information collection tool was the hidden curriculum questionnaire containing 36 items. The data were analyzed with SPSS.V.16 using single-variable t-test, normality test, variance analysis test, Levene test and independent t-test. Findings: The findings indicated that the hidden curriculum enjoys a rank some 3.96 higher than intermediate. Also, there was not found any significant difference between the students’ perspectives (gender-based) regarding the hidden curriculum stance but there was found a significant difference between the students’ perspectives regarding hidden curriculum (based on study fields). Conclusion: according to the scientific and social problems with which the universities are faced, the students’ perspectives are reflective of their positive appraisal of the hidden curriculum in Para-medical schools.
