Aim: To analyze the association between self-directed learning, self-esteem, self-efficacy, time management and academic commitment among medical students. Material and methods: The self-directed learning, Rosemberg self-esteem, general self- efficacy, time management and Utrecht work engagement scales were applied to 297 first year medical students. Results: A multiple regression analysis showed a significant association between self-efficacy, time management and academic commitment with self-directed learning.

Conclusions: self-esteem, academic commitment and a good time management were associated with self-directed learning in these students.
