Iran University of Medical Sciences


Iran University of Medical Sciences (IUMS) was first established as a medical center in August 1973. Initial planning of the University in 1974 lasted less than 2 years and began with the establishment of a library, by gathering several thousand scientific journals and books in different branches of medical sciences. 


An undergraduate or a first-level university student is a student working toward an Associate, B.Sc., M.D., D.D.S., or Pharm.D. degree. We consider you an undergraduate applicant if you have graduated from high school and are applying to one of the above-mentioned degrees.

Doctor of Medicine (M.D.), Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.), and Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) applicants should note that the language of instruction and patient interaction will be Persian/Farsi, although IUMS professors speak English, power points and books are in English, and exams might be given in English. 


The University provides access to state-of-the-art facilities, well-equipped laboratories, libraries, and world-class teaching hospitals.  IUMS offers a wide range of programs, both at the undergraduate and graduate level, some of which are joint programs designed to be taught in collaboration with other institutions. The ultimate goal is to provide students with a high quality education, giving them the necessary skills and connections to take on employment positions they desire following their graduation.


IUMS is one of the leading institutions in the country and the region, offering basic science programs and health care professional degrees in Medicine, Pharmacy and very soon, in Dentistry, through its International Campus. Our faculty undertake research and educational activities with the ultimate goal of creating knowledge and training competent professionals prepared for careers of the future.
