ABSTRACT: Concept analysis is the foundation of achieving a clear and explicit understanding of the concept of value-based curriculum and modelling. The curriculumsof the medical sciences education in Iran suffer some drawbacks. The lack of a domestic model of the curriculum based on values is one of the main issues of the curriculum. There was no common and clear definition for the concept of value-based curriculum, or occasionally the definitions were not uniform and compatible. The present study proposes a concept analysis method to reach a proper definition of the concept and its furtherdevelopment. Then, it compares different definitions of the concept of value-based curriculum, and clarifies confusing definitions. To model the value-based curriculum, we chose the concept qualitative analysis model of Hugh McKenna. Value-based curriculum is not just a tool for perception of the educational contents, but it is a movement beyond reasoning and analytical methods and contemplation that usually takes place during education.
