School of Rehabilitation
At present, the School of Rehabilitation, which provides academic services in all fields of Rehabilitation including Audiology, Physiotherapy, Speech therapy, and Occupational Therapy, is a nationally recognized leader in the education of allied health providers in Iran

 

School of Rehabilitation, with the history of about 48 years, was founded in 1965. At the beginning, the first group of students officially started their education at the Department of Physiotherapy in the School of Medicine at Imam Khomeini Hospital. The Department was approved by the World Health Organization (WHO), and in 1990 the School of Rehabilitation started to function as the School of Rehabilitation.
The first four years of academic programs of the School were just limited to Physiotherapy. Later, other fields of Rehabilitation, such as Audiology, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Therapy were added to the program.
 
During the 8-year imposed war (the 1st Persian Gulf War), there was a unique opportunity to face with various kinds of patients who needed rehabilitation services; therefore, there was an emergency need for preparing the relevant therapists. From that time, the School has led the way in preparing students with the knowledge, behavior, and skills required to function within the diverse roles of the contemporary health care environment.
 
At present, the School of Rehabilitation, which  provides academic services in all fields of Rehabilitation including Audiology, Physiotherapy, Speech therapy, and Occupational Therapy, is a nationally recognized leader in the education of allied health providers in Iran.
 
The School of Rehabilitation is well-known in developing high-quality professional programs in all rehabilitation-related fields, and through academic training, comprehensive research, technology design, and rigorous clinical training that are needed for rehabilitation health services, our graduates will be leaders in their field and will be ready to deliver high-quality patient care.
