Materials and Methods: This study was a descriptive-analytical and applied one which was conducted in all public and private hospitals affiliated to Tehran University of Medical Sciences in 2015. Study population was all senior managers of hospitals and data was collected by a researcher-developed, valid and reliable questionnaire.  Data analyzed using descriptive and Inferential statistics.

Results: Self-efficacy facing with crisis was assessed on average level (101 out of 130) and high among married men with previous experience in disasters. Also, self-efficacy level reported high among aged and position of ED managers. Nevertheless, there was no significant relationship between self-efficacy and participation in educational course and hospital ICS membership.

Conclusion: Given the relationship of self-efficacy with the aged and prior experience in disasters, these variables should be considered in selecting proper people for these positions. Moreover, having successful experiences dealing with challenges enhances the level of Self-efficacy among managers. Hence, using some techniques such as simulation or providing maneuvers can acquaint managers with the possible conditions facing with disasters.
