The Summary of the Paper
|Medical education undergoes a change including its scope, quality and societal expectations. Evolutionary medicine covers all these items and provides a holistic perspective that is important to medicine students and doctors. An interdisciplinary area called

Furthermore, some issues related to the relationship between as a concept of evolution and medicine is evaluated. In addition, the structure of medical education curriculum and the position of evolution are explored. Lastly, some suggestions are off ered to make evolution a part of medical education curriculum by referring to “Evolutionary Medicine” that was founded by medicine students.
