 Message from the Chancellor



Welcome to Tehran University of Medical Sciences (TUMS), the first-established medical university in Iran. In fact, medical education in Iran has a long history. With historical and urban settlements dating back to 4,000 B.C., Iran has always been a host for medical researchers and scientists. Avicenna, whose works on medicine were standard medical texts at many medieval universities in Europe, and Zakariya Razi (AKA Rhazes), to whom numerous firsts in medical research and clinical care are attributed, are two of the most outstanding figures among the great physicians and medical scholars of the country in the past centuries.

Though medical education in Iran has seen its ups and downs, today, Iranian universities are considered among the bests in the region, and TUMS is by far the most outstanding university in the country, which is usually the first choice of bright students. Up to 70% of top ranked students in the nationwide entrance exam have selected TUMS to pursue their education in recent years.
With 12 schools, 16 hospitals, 90 research centers, and 75 libraries, and more than 20,000 students (60% of whom are female), TUMS is proud and honored to educate about 40% of the country’s Ph.D. students in basic medical sciences.
Now TUMS is making further investments to expand its international links to recruit students and staff from the region and across the world. I look forward to welcoming you to our university and wish you success in your academic endeavors.
Dr. Abbas Ali Karimi
