Background & aim: The success of universities and higher education institutions in achieving their educational goals and expectations requires improving and ensuring the quality of education. The purpose of the present study was to determine and describe the quality components of educational performance of faculty members.
 
Methods: The present qualitative descriptive exploratory study was carried out in 2018-2019 and used purposeful sampling method. Data were collected through in-depth semi-structured and face-to-face interviews. Key participants of the study were faculty members of Yasuj University of Medical Sciences, 18 of whom were selected by purposeful sampling method and considering maximum difference between samples in terms of differences in faculty of work, field of study and academic rank. Initially, two general questions about the components of quality of educational performance were asked to start the interview and the process was continued based on the participants' responses. Each interview lasted between one hour and thirty minutes to two hours on average, and the place of interview was the faculty room. Interviews continued until theoretical saturation. Interviews were analyzed by step-by-step thematic analysis based on Brown and Clark's six-step method. 
 
Results: In the present study, 18 faculty members of Yasuj University of Medical Sciences were interviewed. Five participants (27.8%) were female and 13(72.2%) were male. From the scientific position, 4(22.2%) were professors, 9(50%) were associate professors, 3(16.7%) were assistant professors and 2(11.1%) were instructors. Also 47 items were extracted from the basic themes, then reduced to 14 organizer themes based on their content similarity and composition. Finally, these themes were put into four domains (inclusive themes) of educational evaluation, educational planning, educational features and educational strategies and the qualitative model of these factors was designed.
 
Conclusion: The educational performance of the faculty is a multidimensional concept whose quality depends on all aspects and the relationship between them. Since the educational performance of faculty members also depends on the type of academic disciplines, this study may be a further study to evaluate the educational quality of faculty members in other disciplines.
