Methods One hundred and fifty-four full-time teachers of Shanghai Institute of Health Sciences were surveyed with self-designed questionnaires. A total of 142 questionnaires were recovered, with the recovery rate of 92.2%. There were 137 effective questionnaires, and the effective rate was 88.9%. The surveyed content and structure were divided into teachers' basic situation and teachers' professional development situation. Results There were problems in professional level, professional identity, professional independent consciousness, professional knowledge and skills structure, evaluation system and training system for medical higher vocational teachers' professional development, which needed to be improved.
