A Short History of Mahidol University

Mahidol University originates from Thailand’s first hospital, Siriraj Hospital, founded in 1888, and the hospital's medical school is the oldest institution of higher learning in Thailand, granting its first medical degree in 1893. Later becoming the University of Medical Sciences in 1942, the University was renamed with great honor in 1969 by H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej after his own father, H.R.H. Prince Mahidol of Songkla, who is widely regarded as the 'Father of Modern Medicine and Public Health in Thailand'.

Since then, Mahidol University has diversified from its original strengths in medicine and science, so it now also excels in social sciences, arts and humanities. With its many prestigious honors and achievements, Mahidol University has become an internationally acclaimed institution, recognized for its academic excellence.
