About our College of Health Sciences

The College of Health Sciences is home to established undergraduate programs in Public Health and Environmental Health and Safety, and undergraduate programs in Biomedical Sciences (Laboratory Medicine), Molecular and Medical Genetics, and Human Nutrition and Dietetics launched in 2019.  Pharmacy and Radiography and Medical Imaging programs will be launched in 2020 - 2021, with Pre-Med and Medicine degrees in the pipeline.

The collective educational mission of the health sciences programs is to provide students with a broad and flexible multidisciplinary curriculum, producing graduates equipped with both theoretical and practical knowledge related to their chosen program, as well as scientific and technical knowledge more generally. They will have the ability to analyse, evaluate, and communicate effectively with patients, their families, and fellow professionals, receive opportunities to conduct undergraduate and postgraduate research and acquire an understanding of, and appreciation for, global and societal issues, preparing them not only for a career in the health sciences but also leadership roles in the field of medicine.

Our programs come under the broad umbrella of ‘Allied Health Professions’. Some are predominately laboratory pathology, while others are more patient-facing. All are in high demand in the UAE. We have Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) with SEHA, Department of Health, VPS Healthcare (Burjeel), Cleveland Clinic, National Rehabilitation Center, Universal Hospital, Gulf Diagnostic Center, Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi Ports, ADVETI (Abu Dhabi Vocational Education and Training Institute), CAMFIL (Indoor Air Quality), and FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization – a United Nations entity).
