Introduction:The significance of problem-solving skills is obvious to anyone. As learners are about to start higher education, they should improve their learning skills and be able to solve their problems independently. Therefore, a study was conducted to evaluate problem solving and assertiveness skills of resident of plastic and reconstructive surgery in Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences in 2015-2016.
 Methods: This was a cross-sectional study. The population consisted of 46 Plastic surgery residents in Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences. They worked at Fifteenth of Khordad and Shahid Modaress Hospitals. They were selected through census sampling. Heppner and Peterson standard questionnaires were used for problem solving and Rattus questionnaire for assertiveness skills. Finally, the data was analyzed using repeated measure ANOVA and Pearson's correlation coefficient using SPSS-22.

Results: The results showed no significant difference of problem solving and assertiveness skills of residents of Plastic Surgery in Fifteenth of Khordad and Shahid Modaress Hospitals (P>0.05). There was a relatively strong correlation between problem solving and assertiveness skills
(r= - 0/65).
Conclusions: Through improving problem-solving skills among plastic surgery residents, assertiveness skills also expand. Thus, training programs should provide educational and life skill opportunities to equip learners with different abilities, including problem solving and assertiveness skills.
