TEHRAN MEDICAL UNIVERSITY
HISTORYTehran university(UT) history backs to many years ago when world war second was going to be ended. The main idea of constructing a university in the capital of Iran was brought up in a very prominent meeting in where the prior minister of ministry of education Ali Asghar Hekmat came up with following words there:
"Of course, there is no doubt on the thriving state and the glory of the capital, but the only obvious deficiency is that this city has no university. It is a pity that this city lags far behind other great countries.
In that period of the time by the order of former king of Iran Reza Shah and with of course the cooperation of numbers of adroit architects and engineers from other countries like France, Swiss and some other countries, they began to search for an appropriate location in which the new university was to be established.
Finally, at a region called Amir-abad, a beautiful garden full of orchards which was designed by Jalal ad-dawlah, was selected.
The university of Tehran officially inaugurated in 1934.
In 1986 the Iranian parliament stipulated that the university's overcrowded College of medicine be separated into the independent Tehran University of Medical Science(TUMS).
Tehran medical university is the oldest and the most important university of Iran. UT has been nicknamed "THE MOTHER UNIVERSITY OF IRAN”.
