Background: Given the role of job involvement in job satisfaction and improving the organizational performance of the staff, the present study was conducted to evaluate the effect of Iran's Health Transformation Plan (HTP) on job involvement of the clinical faculty members.
Methods: This descriptive study was conducted in the academic year of 2018-2019 and in educational hospitals affiliated with Ahvaz Jundishapur University of Medical Sciences in Iran, and finally, 90 clinical faculty members participated in this study by using a convenience sampling method. To collect data, a researcher-made questionnaire was based on the standard Lodahl and Kejner's job involvement questionnaire. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics (mean, standard deviation, percentage), inferential statistics (independent t-test and analysis of variance), and SPSS22 software.
Results: The results revealed that the level of Iran's Health Transformation
Plan on job involvement of the clinical faculty members was moderate
(48.73 ± 14.40).Variables such as gender, age, education, academic rank, employment history, and having a private clinic and hospital where faculty members work, did not have a significant effect on their job involvement.
P-value > 0.05)

Conclusion: The HTP is currently one of the most important and costly health care reforms in Iran, and for better success and the staff's satisfaction, it is recommended to pay more attention to effective and influential factors in improving and increasing job involvement of service providers, especially clinical faculty members in their periodic evaluation.
