Academic Quality

Exchange students coming to Iran will be provided with a unique experience of internship in prestigious universities of Iran which are among the bests in the region! Public hospitals in Iran are affiliated to medical universities and the attendings are the faculty members of the universities. The primary healthcare clinics in suburbs and rural areas are also affiliated to medical universities. Therefore, most of our teaching hospitals are secondary or tertiary centers which provides a better learning opportunity for students and a deeper look into the more complicated cases. The clerkships of other healthcare students such as nurses and technicians will take place in the same hospitals, which enriches the multi-disciplinary learning.
