Tehran University of Medical Sciences (TUMS)


The first center of medical training in Iran was founded in 1851. It was a part of the Institute of Higher Education. The School of Medicine was established as a part of University of Tehran (UoT) in 1934. After the Islamic Revolution, medical schools and departments associated with medical fields were separated from the Ministry of Higher Education and were taken under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Health, Treatment, and Medical Education. Since 1986, all those schools of (UoT) which specialize in medical fields have carried on their activities independently as Tehran University of Medical Sciences and Health Services.
