BACKGROUND: Antidoping program shifted their policy from detection to prevention. So it became mandatory to understand attitudes, beliefs, and knowledge among students to prepare efficient educational courses. No work has addressed this issue before in this faculty. We aimed to identify knowledge, beliefs, attitudes, and prevalence of doping.
METHODS: An anonymous self-reported validated questionnaire was administered to a representative student sample from a new Physical Education Faculty, Suez Canal University.
RESULTS: Prevalence of personal use was 2.7%, whereas 6.8% are willing to use in the future. The prevalence of doping among surroundings was 49%. Most students showed lack of knowledge although their antidoping attitude with negative beliefs regarding top athletes and doping control.
CONCLUSIONS: The educational policy in this new faculty needs modification by introducing early-onset extended educational doping curriculum. This will immunize the students against the surroundings with the updated knowledge. It will have impacts on their beliefs, behaviors, and attitudes.


KEY WORDS: Doping in sports; Physical education and training; Substance abuse detection
