Aims: This study has aimed to analyze the validity and reliability of the Baqiyatallah Physician’s Satisfaction Questionnaire (BPSQ) in order to achieve suitable tools for measuring Physician’s Job Satisfaction (PJS).

Methods: The research sample of this study includes 313 physicians who work in the Baqiyatallah Hospital which were selected by a stratified sampling method. All subjects answered the BPSQ. After checking the translation validity the confirmatory and explanatory factor analysis and Cronbach's alpha was used in order to examine the construct validity and reliability respectively. The SPSS and AMOS programmer version 18 were used to analyze data.

Results: Among the 313 studied subjects 171(54.6%) were women and 142(45.4%) were men. The explanatory factor analysis showed 4 factors with 53.6% total variance and 0.85 Kaser-Meyer-Olkin Index. The result were also confirmed by the confirmatory factor analysis (RMSEA=0.041, CFI=0.92, TLI=0.91, IFI=0.92, PGFI=0.71, PNFI=0.66). Also, the reliability was 0.83 by using the Cronbach's Alpha method.

Conclusion: As the validity and reliability indexes of the BPSQ were reported to be suitable, it can be confirmed that this questionnaire is a valid and reliable tool for measuring physician’s job satisfaction.
