Mashhad University of Medical Sciences (MUMS) is a medical school in Iran. Located in Razavi Khorasan province in the city of Mashhad, it was established in 1949 with Ferdowsi University of Mashhad and was separated in 1986 from its parent institution by national legislation.
The university is currently ranked as one of the best universities in the Middle East. In 2001, its department of Medicine was ranked first among the Iranian universities. The latest rankings put Mashhad University in the 3rd place nationally.

Mashhad Faculty of Medicine was officially opened on November 23, 1949 by Dr Zanganeh, the minister of culture. The school started working with 61 students, one associate professor and seven tutors. In 1956, when the School of Arts opened, the two schools were merged to form the University of Mashhad.
In 1989, the faculties offering Medical Sciences' degrees across the country separated from the Ministry of Culture and Higher Education. New emerging medical universities have gone under management of Ministry of Health, Treatment and Medical Education.
