Message from the Chancellor


Being one of the oldest and largest universities in Iran, SUMS has been a recognized center of excellence for healthcare and teaching since its foundation in 1949. The inclination to keep abreast of the increasingly fierce international competition among educational medical centers has made this university committed to being a pioneer in education, treatment, and research.

As far as education is concerned, 900 academic staff and 30000 personnel are benevolently dedicated to providing service to around 10000 students in over 200 different fields of study who embark upon a journey of pursuing their education which is challenging and rewarding.

As for treatment, every endeavor in 14 Teaching Hospitals and 30 Health Networks has been made to facilitate the medical care centers and hospitals with the state-of-the-art technology and resources in an effort to optimize the efficiency of treatment and fulfill our mission of alleviating human suffering caused by diseases. With regard to research, we are proud of the fact that SUMS, with 63 Research Centers, has been ranked first among universities of Medical Sciences in publishing scientific papers per academic faculty for the last several years.

Shiraz University of Medical Sciences displays a good deal of tradition as well as modernity, aiming at training students, utilizing high-quality education and research. We are glad to welcome international students to our university.
