Background and Aims: Use of electronic technologies in the teaching-learning process is an integral part of education today. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of using e- portfolio on learning of emergency medical students in pharmacology courses.

Methods: This study is quasi-experimental with pretest-posttest design and control group. Study population consisted of all paramedical college students in Kermanshah in the 2015-2016 school year. The sample consisted of 30 students were selected by convenience sampling method and randomly assigned to two experimental and control groups. The instrument used in this study which consisted of learning pretest and posttest of pharmacology course, was acceptable with validity and reliability. Data were analyzed by using independent t test and Spss software version 18.

Results: The experimental results indicate that there is a significant difference between post-test scores in experimental and control groups. In other words, the results of this study showed the use of e-portfolio is a significant impact on students' learning in the pharmacology course.

Conclusion: This result indicates the effectiveness of electronic portfolio using in pharmacology learning, in contrast to traditional teaching methods and is the scientific testifier to recommend for using this model to teach at the University of Medical Sciences.

Keywords: Electronic portfolio, Learning, Emergency Medical Pharmacology Course Students.
