Langeroud School of Paramedical Sciences (Allied Medical Sciences) was established in Eastern Guilan Educational Complex, which is located in the tourist spot of Leyla Kooh, Langeroud, in 2009 based on the approval granted at the forty-fourth session of the Educational Council and the University Council of Guilan University of Medical Sciences and Health Services. The school began its activities as a branch of Guilan University of Medical Sciences and Health Services by offering “Medical Laboratory Sciences” program and “Radiology” program at associate degree level and then at bachelor’s level in 2007 and 2008. A number of students were subsequently admitted to the school in the fields of “Operating Room Technology” and “Anesthesia Technology”.
