This book traces how medicine in modern Iran was both theoretically and institutionally transformed in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It explores the process by which local physicians, in a non-colonial context, assimilated the emerging 'modern medicine' and the institutional devices that accommodated this transition. Author Hormoz Ebrahimnejad analyzes various intertwined factors, including intellectual and institutional dynamics, epidemics, professional and financial interests, international relationships, state centralisation and the modernisation movement to provide a comprehensive account of Iran's medical modernization.
