Abstract: The Dundee Ready Education Environment Measure (dreem) checklist has been fully used to assess the educational environment (EE), especially in the health sector, to determine the strengths and weaknesses of the program. The purpose of this study was to investigate the views of medical students of Jeddah Medical College (COM) on educational environment (EE). This cross-sectional study was conducted among medical students from May to August 2020. In order to achieve the purpose of this study, we used a pre-designed English dreem questionnaire, which contains five sub areas. A total of 220 students answered the free survey, with an average age of 21.97 (SD)   =   1.28). Boys and girls accounted for 64.5 and 35.5 of the respondents respectively, while MOS of them were in the fourth year of medical college (109, 49.5 ), and the majority belonged to phase II (basic sciences) of the college (144, 65.4 ). The overall total DREEM score for EE was 129.64 (SD = 31.81; 64.82 ), and all the five subdomains of DREEM scored above 60 with the highest score by students’ academic self-perception (SASP) (21.22; 66.31 ) and the lowest by students’ perception of learning (SPL) (30.16; 62.83 ). Also, SASP2 was the highest scoring item with a mean of 3.13 (SD = 0.96), while SPA8 was the lowest with a mean score of 1.99 (SD = 1.38). We also compared our study with the available literature for contextual interpretations. The students’ assessment for EE of the medical program was positive; however, we identified a need for an improvement plan for six-weak scoring areas and one of the weak domains of DREEM i.e., students’ perception of teaching (SPT).
