Convergence Medicine is a new educational, research and therapeutic branch in medicine that could lead to important changes and innovations both in research and clinical care medicine. This new technology was initiated in 2014 and rapidly expanded throughout the world. Convergence Medicine was planned following Converging Technologies in Science [Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Informatics Technology and Cognitive Science (NBIC)] in 2002. At present many universities, research and educational institutes globally take advantage of Convergence Medicine. Hopefully, by considering the aim and objectives of this new medical technology, many of the existing medical and health issues of the society and communities could be overcome in future. In this evaluation, we have paid attention to the formation of this concept from the initial stage and its associated advantages. By incorporation of Convergence Medicine in the Iranian medical society, strategic policies could be taken in various medical and medical related fields such as health care policies, research, investment in research fields, workforce policies and team work.
