Growth and development of health psychology departments owes to the paradigm shift in medical sciences and the establishment of new dialogue based on bio-psychosocial models. Changing the pattern of disease prevalence from contagious to non-contagious and identifying the role of psychological and social variables introduced a new definition of health and disease that highlighted the role of psychology in explaining, preventing, treating and rehabilitating alongside other medical disciplines. According to this inevitable necessity, the Department of Health Psychology was founded at Isfahan University of Medical Sciences in 2017
