After the establishment of the Ministry of Health, Teaching, and Treatment, the Iran University School of Medicine was created in 1365 by the integration of two medical schools: the Ayatollah Taleghani Medical Center and the Iran Medical Center. Ayatollah Taleghani Medical Center was created on 28/12/1352 from the Batmanghelij Medical Teaching Center, a branch of the Red Crescent, and started to accept students from underdeveloped provinces in a non-centralized fashion in 1354. Iran Medical Center was established in Mordad 1353 and started functioning in Mehr 1354. This center began accepting medical students amongst BS graduates from 1356, and from 1361, it started to accept high school graduates who had passed the nationwide university entrance exam.
From the second half of the 71-72 academic year, the basic medical sciences section in the central Pardis Complex of the niversity was responsible for creating a program and teaching basic science courses at the university level.
