The Faculty of Health Sciences was awarded faculty status in August 2010. Before then, it was the Institute of Health Care, a University institute, set up in 1987, for the education and training of health care professionals.
Our departments have active research programmes in various areas of specialisation, and some offer M.Sc. and Ph.D. programmes.
We are also responsible for the running of Continuing Professional Development courses for registered practitioners to ensure that health professionals keep abreast of the continuing advances in the medical field and related technologies.
