To reach the high morality standards in our medical researches, to respect human rights and to respect religious and cultural values in medical sciences research, Regional Medical Ethics Committee were formed in every medical university across the country.
1- Considering religious, legal and ethical values in all the epidemiologic, clinical and basic  sciences' research
2- Protecting human subjects against possible risks of study
3- Protecting rights of subjects, researchers and research institutes along with considering Islamic and cultural values in the study
4- Forbidding research activities which are not complying with our Islamic ethics and cultural ethical values
5- Developing culture of using ethical consular in research activities
Ethical Codes for Medical Researches
      To develop ethical codes for medical researches we did a literature review under the topic: "Writing ethical and legal values to protect subjects in medical sciences research". The literature review covered many books and articles on the subject's satisfactions, harms and benefits and how to peak subjects. We also considered Nerenberg, Helsingi and Belmont codes. At the end the codes were justified with Islamic laws and Iranian cultures and were approved by country ethical committee.

The school started out with 61 students, one associate professor and seven tutors. In 1956, when the school of Arts opened, the two schools 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. Thus the original University of Mashhad was divided into two independent universities: "Ferdowsi University of Mashhad" and "Mashhad University of Medical Sciences'. Mashhad University of Medical Sciences operates at present with 8 faculties, 32 hospitals, 179 rural and 147 urban health centers. It covers an enormous area stretching from the north east to the central parts of the country, which makes it the largest university of Medical Sciences providing health care and treatment services. With 597 teaching staff, 1645 MDs with different specialties, 138 dentists, 123 pharmacists and 25, 402 employees, the university provides health care and medical services to the area's large population as well as to over 25 million tourists a year.
