Another major step forward by Iran University of Medical Sciences in 2021
In an interview with the university’s Public Relations reporter, Dr. Moghtadaei - the Vice President for International Affairs, announced that according to the latest Times Impact Ranking (2021), IUMS had ranked first and most impactful university in Iran, as well as in the Middle Eastern Region, placing 35th worldwide with a 300-point lead over the next best ranked Iranian university.

The Times Impact Rankings is one of the newest international ranking systems used since 2019 to evaluate the World's most influential universities based on their achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). It has been widely welcomed by more universities since its debut, which is why the number of participating universities in the ranking process has increased from 400 universities (in 2019) to more than 1,100 universities from 96 countries (in 2021).

For the third year in a row, IUMS has been able to shine among top-ranked universities from around the World, placed 35th in impact ranking, second in ‘quality of education’ and sixth in ‘the provision of health and well-being for people,’ which are all indicative of the social responsibility and commitment by the university and its members towards enhanced cooperation, knowledge transfer, and quality educational and health care services for the sustainable development of society.
