To analyse the data, descriptive and analytical statistics including Mean and Pearson’s correlation test were used (SPSS 20) the significance level was considered less than 0.05.
Results: The mean age of the subjects was 33.02 ± 7.18 years, ranging from 23 to 53 years old; 71.4% were females; 24.3% had undergraduate education and the rest were college students. The working experience of subjects was at most in the range of 1 to 5 years (41.6%).  The most frequent field of specialization was general surgery (21.1%).The strongest ethical climate and organizational commitment were associated with "professionalism" and "continued commitment”, respectively.  The result of Pearson’s test showed that there is a positive and significant relationship between ethical climate and organizational commitment.
