Introduction to Medical Entomology Department

Since 1992, the MEVC group was established as an official group in the chart of the Shiraz school of health and nutrition, Shiraz University of medical sciences (SUMS). Its activities started in the fields of education and research for all schools' curricula within SUMS from the same time.
To implement the twelfth clause of the forty third law of Islamic Republic of Iran's constitution based on community health and in consideration of the fact that a remarkable number of known endemic diseases in Iran are transmitted by arthropods including insects of importance in clinical medicine, and despite measures adopted in the last few decades to eliminate and/or diminish parasite reservoirs; with the exception of dracunculiasis; no other diseases could by far be eradicated. There is thus a need to educate individuals who can be actively involved in these fields. The curriculum of Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Medical Entomology and Vector Control (MEVC) has been designed to provide this human work force.
