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 in 1969 by H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej to honor 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. The university has always placed a strong emphasis on research and also has the most international degree programs in Thailand.
