Department of History of Medicine
Departments of history of medicine worldwide pursue such aims as investigation into the history of medical sciences and elucidation of historical blind spots in the field of medicine to promote national identity in medical societies. By the same token to investigate the history of medical sciences, particularly that of Persian Medicine, SPM’s Department of History of Medicine was founded in 2013.
This department, one of few departments of its kind in Iran, offers an MSc degree in history of medicine and also assists students to conduct research in this field. Students and researchers can have access to a special library for history of medical sciences and required facilities for research.
