The Foundation of Shiraz University of Medical Sciences (SUMS) dates back to about 70 years ago when Shiraz Institute of Higher Health Education admitted a few medical students (1945). The High Institute of Health developed into Medical Faculty in 1946.
SUMS displays a good deal of tradition as well as modernity, aiming at training students, utilizing high-quality education and research. Since its foundation, SUMS has been active as one of the largest and most reputable universities in Iran and the Middle East and an influential figure in the region, regarding the services it offers to the students as well as the patients. SUMS is particularly proud of being considered by the Iran Ministry of Health, Treatment and Medical Education as the main hub of four scientific areas as follows:
Over 900 faculty members and more than 25000 personnel are working at SUMS in different areas including health, treatment, research and education. Currently, over 9000 students are studying in a variety of academic disciplines at SUMS schools and research centers.
As a new student you might feel confused about the new setting that you have entered, which can be annoying.Thus, we have planned an orientation program for international students who are new at SUMS. This orientation program can help you get acquainted with the campus, administration staff and offices as well as some areas of the city.
SUMS provides all students with well-equipped dormitories in Shiraz. All students admitted to any program including Doctor of Medicine (M.D.), Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) and Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) programs will be staying in Shiraz during their studies. We provide dormitories for all students, both girls and boys.
