Introduction: University is one of the most important educational systems whose major objective is institutionalization of the best behaviors in people through education. This will happen if the teachers meet the requirements of students, society and their profession. This study was conducted to develop the standards of professionalism for the faculty members of Kurdistan University of Medical Sciences.  
Materials and Methods: This qualitative content analysis study was carried out on the faculty members of Kurdistan University of Medical Sciences. Six standards were derived out of the teachers’ collaboration and focus-group meetings. The outcome of meetings was submitted to the faculty members for organization in three rounds using Delphi technique, from which several standards and a number of ethical codes were extracted. 
Results: A total of six standards were derived out of the results, each with a number of ethical codes as follows: standard 1: general domain, with 13 ethical codes; standard 2: leadership, including classroom leadership, with 24 ethical codes and university or academic institution leadership, with 10 ethical codes; standard 3: provision of favorable learning environment in classroom by the teacher, with 18 ethical codes; standard 4: dominance over the course content, with 17 ethical codes; standard 5: facilitation of students’ learning by the teacher, with 17 ethical codes and standard 6: teachers’ intellectual reflection and contemplation on the teacher’s role and teaching, with 8 ethical codes. 
Conclusion: Observation of standards of professionalism in education increases the quality of education, followed by improved quality of learning environment and moral development of students and society. Thus, it seems that an agreement between the teachers and academic institution and observing the standards of professionalism are significant measures to be taken in accordance with the students’ academic and ethical development.
