Abū 'Ubayd al-Jūzjānī, (d.1070),[1] (ابو عبيد جوزجانی) was a Persian physician and chronicler from what is now Jowzjan Province in Afghanistan.

He was the famous pupil of Avicenna, whom he first met in Gorgan.[2] He spent many years with his master in Isfahan, becoming his lifetime companion. After Avicenna's death, he completed Avicenna's Autobiography with a concluding section.[3]
