Iran to build special schools for training nuclear experts

TEHRAN (FNA)- Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi announced on Tuesday that Iran plans to construct special schools to teach nuclear science and technology to the students.

“Building specialized nuclear schools across Iran are among the AEOI’s plans,” Salehi said, addressing an inaugural ceremony marking the start of construction of a nuclear high school in the city of Mashhad, Northeastern Iran, on Tuesday.

He pointed to the nuclear high school in Mashhad, and said, “The country’s second nuclear energy school will be constructed in Mashhad and a memorandum of understanding has also been signed among the AEOI, Khorassan Razavi governor general’s office and Khorassan Education Department in this regard.”

In July, Salehi said that Iran would construct a special hospital to treat patients who need nuclear medicine.

“Building a specialized nuclear (-diagnosis and treatment) hospital is one of AEOI’s important projects and a MoU has also been signed by the AEOI, the health ministry and Tehran Municipality in this regard,” Salehi told reporters at the time.

He explained that the hospital will present specialized services to treat patients using radiation and different equipment that work with the help of nuclear technology.

Salehi had in earlier remarks stated that the hospital would be unique in West of Asia and make Iranians needless of travels to foreign states for nuclear medicine.
