Dean's Welcome Message
Welcome to the College of Health Sciences, a dynamic institution with a long heritage. The College is an exciting environment in which to learn and work.
The College of Health Sciences was established in 1976 and was the first college of its kind in the region. Since then it has trained and educated thousands of Nurses and Allied health professionals who are currently working in various hospitals and health care services in Bahrain. In addition, many students from other Gulf countries have completed their studies at the College.
Currently the College offers B.Sc. in Nursing and Associate Degree in five different Allied Health specialties. These are Pharmacy, Public Health, Medical Laboratory Technology, Dental Hygiene and Radiography. All of these programs will be offered at the B.Sc. level in the near future. In addition the college offers a Bs completion (bridging) program in Nursing and a 1 year Diploma course in various nursing specialties.
Over the last few years the College of Health Sciences has witnessed major achievements. These developments have touched every aspect of the college work, such as the curricula, academic departments, educational technologies, as well as student services and the learning environment in general.
One of the major accomplishments is the introduction of the Foundation Semester, an introductory 16 week program that aims to improve the entering student’s English language level and learning skills. This has resulted in a marked improvement in the first year students’ academic performance. Another important achievement is upgrading the IT infrastructure and learning technologies as well as the student facilities.
These accomplishments are just the beginning, and we will continue to build on our successes. We will continually strive to raise our standards of training to the highest level possible.
The future looks very bright at the College of Health Sciences. We are building on our proud heritage to ensure that the College of Health Sciences remains at the forefront of health professions education. So whether you are a future student, past graduate or an employee, I invite you to spend time browsing our website. I hope that you will find something that will interest and motivate you to join us.
