School of Medicine

 

About

The history of SUMS School of Medicine dates back to December 1946 when an “Institute of Health for Higher Education”, which was affiliated to Tehran University was established in Shiraz. The Institute trained medical hygienists, who would contribute to disease prevention and treatment responsibility of Iran’s Ministry of Hygiene, during a 4-year program. Later, following the enactment of the regulation on founding medical schools in cities other than the capital, Shiraz School of Medicine was opened in December 1949.

Up to 1985, Iran’s higher education was regulated by the Ministry of Science and since then, following the institution of the Ministry of Health, Treatment, and Medical Education and consequently, the segregation of medical schools from their affiliated universities, all medical schools have been performing under the authority of the newly established ministry. Therefore, Shiraz Medical School and some other schools in the allied field formed Shiraz University of Medical Sciences (SUMS) in 1988.

SUMS School of Medicine was built on a land of 21345 square meters involving the central library of SUMS, several research laboratories, and educational buildings. As the main school of SUMS, the School of Medicine has been famed for its glorious research activities, expert professionals, eminent professors, and elite students.

SUMS School of Medicine is now one of the fastest growing, top-tier biomedical research enterprises in the Country. Currently, approximately 526 faculty members teach within 23 departments at the School. SUMS School of Medicine’s contribution to medical education, science, and treatment has represented the School as a center of excellence in health care services, health policy, health promotion, research, and training in the south of Iran. The School is now home to over 3700 students, residents, and fellows, including 231 international students.
