The objective of this study was to determine the attitude of veterinary educators to problem-based learning and to examine influential parameters. In this study, veterinary educators from the Ankara, Uludag, Selcuk, Harran and Ondolcuz Mayis Veterinary Schools were surveyed. Data were collected from 254 educators by a paper questionnaire. The participants showed intermediate level positive attitude to problem-based learning. In conclusion, it can be said that veterinary educators in Turkey are sensitive to problem-based learning at an intermediate level and that differences in influential factors do not affect the level of sensitivity significantly (p<0.05).
