Baha' al-Dawlah ibn Siraj al-Din Shah Qasim ibn Muhammad al-Husayni Nurbakhshi (also sometimes called Nuri rather than Nurbakhshi), was a 15–16th century Persian physician.

He obtained court favor in both Persia and Baghdad. He is known by one treatise, a medical compendium called Khulasat al-tajarib (The Summary of Experience) which he composed in 1501 CE in the village of Tarasht, which was near the town of Ray, present-day Tehran.
