President of Sidi Mohammed Benabdellah University
The Medical School of Sidi Mohammed Ben Abdellah University will host the 8 th International Congress of Fez on History of Medicine. The principal theme of this year is: “History of medical education”. It’s an occasion to follow the evolution of medical education from the ancient to modern times.
Fez, the majestic spiritual and political capital of Morocco in the Middle Ages, founded by Idris I in 789 AD, is a great city of outstanding Islamic culture. It has the best preserved old area in the Arab world: the sprawling, labyrinthine medina of Fes Al-Bali, which is incidentally also the world’s largest car-free urban zone. In 1981, UNESCO listed Fes Al Bali as a world heritage site under the name of Medina of Fez. It is famous for being home to the world’s oldest university, the Qarawiyyin University. Fez has numerous madrassas (i.e. schools for Islamic studies), museums, handcraft shops, the oldest extant water clock, and many other outstanding monuments.
Scientific Arabo-Islamic and Western speakers will give valuable keynote lectures on the history of medicine in Muslim civilization.

FEZ is an imperial city that has stood in the north of morocco for a thousand year. Founded by Idriss I in 789, it was the capital of modern Morocco until the late 19th century. A vibrant metropolis that has held within its dusty walls the UNESCO world heritage old town. With the high walled streets, the elaborate architecture of the historic medina, the ornate carving, mosaics and the daily routine of a population bound to an old fashioned lifestyle, it feels as time has stopped in the spiritual heart of Morocco.
