The statistical population of this research consisted of all medical students of Tehran University from 2011 up to now and then 326 of students were selected using Morgan table and simple accidental sampling method. To gather data, a researcher-made questionnaire consisting of three sections including team motivation, team enjoyment, team participation was distributed among the participants. To estimate the reliability of each section, Cronbach’s alpha coefficient was used. Independent t-test was performed to compare whether two independent groups (female and male) had different average values. In order to determine the differences between research variables among medical students from gander and field of study aspects, unilaterally variance analysis was used. The equality of two groups’ variances was determined via Loon test then the assumption of homogeneity of variances was accepted. The results revealed that there were not significant differences in the mean scores of medical students of Tehran University regarding team motivation, team enjoyment, and team participation from gender and field of study aspects.
