Abstract: Urolithiasis is one of the major problems in urology practice. The health care providers’ knowledge, attitudes and practices are important factors causing delay in treatments. The objective of this study was to determine knowledge, attitudes and practices regarding urinary tract stones among final year medical students. This study was a descriptive cross sectional study conducted over a period of six months with 102 students within the age range of 22 to 28 years. The mean age was 25.21 ±1.041years and mean knowledge score was 72.72%. Out of the sample 55.55% had positive attitudes towards the urolithiasis. There were 90.12% (n= 92) of them recommended to drink more than 2 liters of water instead of other liquids for patients who suffered from kidney stone disease. Out of the sample 83.35% (n=85) participants agreed to advice to avoid highCa containing foods. Therefore the knowledge and practices of medical students towards urolithiasis was good and attitudes were poor.
