Addressing the history of healthcare and treatment of Iran's oil industry, is dealing with the oldest healthcare system in Iran. In order to address this history, it is necessary to consider the design and evolution of the system from various perspectives, one of which will be a biographical review. Accordingly, in the present article, with a biographical approach, we have dealt with student life and the role of Morris Yang, one of the first physicians of the Iranian-British oil company, who lived in Iran for several years.
This article tries to fill in some of the shortcomings in biographical studies about the first practitioners of the healthcare system in Iran. This study shows that medical knowledge, regardless of its scientific position, has had a profound social base among Iranian people in nineteenth-century, according to which a "foreign" physician has deeply entered into the Iranian community. This study shows that history of medicine in Iran, as an interdisciplinary knowledge should be deliberated more seriously in Iran.
