Background: Focusing on the organizational conflict and the depression in the main trainers of an educational system, the faculty members are very necessary because the increased negative organizational conflicts lead to a lower public health. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between the job depression and the organizational conflict in the faculty members. 
Methods: The present study was a correlation type research and the statistical population included seven faculty members of the department/school/institute of medical sciences in the city of Hamedan with 244 faculty members as per the census of 2017. For the collection of the data, the Goldberg and Hiller questionnaire was used for measuring the depression and the organizational conflict inventory. Using descriptive statistics such as Pearson's correlation coefficient and regression analysis, the data were analyzed for modeling by the SPSS Statistics 24 software.
Results: The mean scores of the depression, the organizational conflict, the conflict with the manager, the similar degrees, and the control were 0.8, 22, 6.7, 7.4, and 7.9 respectively. The results showed a significant and positive correlation between the depression and the organizational conflict (P=0.001, r=0.42). Such correlations were also observed in the two dimensions of conflict with the others (P=0.001, r=0.62) and conflict with the control (P=0.001, r=0.43). However, no significant correlation was observed in the dimension of conflict with the manager.
 Conclusion: The different factors of conflict studied in the society must be focused on, addressed, and improved in light of the positive and direct correlations observed between the organizational conflict and the job depression.
