The aim of this study is to determine the job satisfaction level of Medical Vocational High School teachers and whether it differs according to different variables. The research was organized in accordance with the screening model. The population of the research was composed of vocational course teachers who worked in Medical Vocational High Schools providing training in Istanbul in the 2013-2014 academic year. Sample was composed of 144 vocational course teachers chosen from 12 schools which were determined by the simple random cluster sampling method from within the general population. Personal Information Form developed by the researcher was used to determine the demographic characteristics of the group. Hackman and Oldham Job Satisfaction Scale, which was developed by Hackman and Oldham (1980) and which was adapted to Turkish by Silah (2002), was used to determine the job satisfaction level of the vocational course teachers at Medical Vocational High School. Job satisfactions of teachers constituting the sample group were observed to be medium-level. This also showed that the job satisfactions of medical vocational course teachers were at instability level. Teachers did not experience the feeling of high or low job satisfaction; they experienced the feeling of a medium level of job satisfaction. No statistically significant difference was observed among the arithmetic averages of the groups by the type of school they worked, gender, age, marital status, seniority and the residence status of teachers' job satisfaction.
