Results: The most and the least preparedness against earthquake was in disaster management and construction mitigation plan fields respectively. Relationship between the field of hospital curriculums with construction mitigation plan (p= 0/045 and r=0/644) and hospital environmental health action plan (p=0/048 and r=0/636), was significant.

Conclusion : Average of Hospitals preparation against earthquake was evaluated in an intermediate level (51.81percent).
