Former President of Tehran University of Medical Sciences, a first-year medical student, is considering migration

The former president of Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Ali Jafari, who is a first-year medical student, is considering emigrating.

Ali Jafari, the former president of Tehran University of Medical Sciences, stated today that there are no applicants for luxury specialty residencies. As a result, the country’s medical field relies on foreign doctors. It’s not like 50 years ago when Indian and Bangladeshi doctors came to Iran. Now they go to England. At that time, when they came to Iran, they had a good income. But now, why should they come to Iran? Are we leading the country to a point where we won’t even have an anesthesiologist for an appendix surgery in the near future?

Nowadays, if someone wants to pursue a residency, they become a resident outside of Iran instead of staying in the country. That’s why the competitive acceptance exam for residencies has become so difficult that now 800 seats remain vacant. I haven’t seen the Ministry of Health deny it, so it means that these news reports are true.

It’s really bad that a first-year medical student who has just been accepted through the entrance exam asks me whether it’s easier for them to apply for immigration with medicine or dentistry. I have seen cases where interns at our university today, who are defending their thesis, have bought plane tickets for immigration.
