Right of patients are based on the fundamental right, which is stated as the “right to health" in the human rights theory and represent patients’ essential requirements that have to be met (Bostan, 2007). Rights of patients that became a current issue in line with the great change in medicine technology and healthcare services within the last 50 years, have today won a permanent position embedded in the health system, such position anticipated to be permanent in the future also. This study has been performed as illustrative in order to assess the opinions of a foundation university, Healthcare Services Vocational School students (Health Facilities Administration, Medical Documentation, Anesthetics, Medical Imaging, Emergency and First Aid) concerning the rights of patients. Target population of the study was formed by the 1st and 2nd grade students of the High School and all students have been taken as sampling. The research was conducted with 126 students, volunteering to participate. It was determined that 69,8% of students hadn’t taken the “medical law” course and 61,1% of students hadn’t taken the “medical ethics” course. Management of Health Institutions students were agreed the most to this item. Consequently, it was concluded that the topic of patient rights should further be included in the lesson contents of Health Services VHS students and that it would be useful to encourage the students for some different studies to establish more sensitivity about the topic.
