      Description

      Bahram Einollahi, in his capacity as the Minister of Health, Treatment, and Medical Education, has participated in institutionalising systematic gender discrimination by issuing a directive on dress code and behaviour addressed to all medical universities. The directive requires medical universities to obtain written commitments from students and assistants, enforcing adherence to the guidelines. Students are obligated to sign this commitment upon entering the university, and it will be kept in their academic files.

      This letter, issued by Abdolfazl Bagheri-Fard to the medical universities nationwide, obligates students to sign a written commitment upon entering the university. This commitment, kept in the students' academic records, is part of the students' academic files.

       

       According to this directive, academic staff are required to grade students and assistants based on their level of hijab and attire, and a separate transcript named "Professional Attire and Behaviour" will be issued for them.
