Background: In order to develop entrepreneurship, we need to study and recognize the present entrepreneurship situation precisely. The aim of this study was to determine the entrepreneurship behavior of the faculty members in Qazvin University of Medical Sciences and its effective structural factors.
Methods: This analytical cross-sectional study was conducted among 270 faculty members working in 5 schools of Qazvin University of Medical Sciences in 2018. A three-part standard questionnaire including demographic characteristics, entrepreneurial behavior, and structural factors questions was used for data collection. Furthermore, ANOVA and linear regression modeling were applied using Stata 13 software.
Results: The mean scores reported for the entrepreneurial behavior and structural elements of participants were 3.76 ± 0.55 and 2.51 ± 0.89, respectively. These rates show high tendency of the faculty members toward the entrepreneurship and average conditions for the structural elements. With increase of age, entrepreneurship behavior increased; whereas, an increase in the educational level led to a decrease in entrepreneurship behavior (p < 0.05). Finally, in the last model, the organizational structure revealed a significant effect on entrepreneurship behavior (p < 0.05).
 Conclusion: Considering the effect of structural elements on entrepreneurial behavior of the faculty members, we need such substructure in the universities and the higher education organizations of Iran to assist development of entrepreneurial behavior among the faculty members.
