Dean's Welcome

It gives me a great pleasure to welcome you all to the electronic site of college of health sciences (CHS). In 1998, under the guidance of his highness Shaikh Doctor Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, (member of the Supreme Council of UAE, Ruler of Sharjah and President of the University of Sharjah), CHS was established to graduate highly skillful health workers in different health sciences specializations to fulfill the need of all health sectors in UAE and in the region. The College offers seven accredited undergraduate bachelor programs, namely:

  1. Medical Laboratory Sciences (MLS)
  2. Medical Diagnostic Imaging (MDI)
  3. Nursing (Nsg)
  4. Health Services Administration (HSA)
  5. Physiotherapy (PT)
  6. Environmental Health Sciences (EHS)
  7. Clinical Nutrition and Dietetics (CN&D).

    Students in CHS will enjoy education and university life full of valuable science which is accompanied by specialized clinical training skills that will help them to serve the patients and the community. This uniqueness of the programs of CHS when compared to other colleges that will raise the student’s sense of the importance and impact of what they are studying on humanity in general and on our community. The outcome of CHS programs are specialized graduates who are aware of the importance of their field of work and who are skilled to serve and help those in need.

    During the BSc programs at CHS, the college will focus on using state of the art education material and techniques to allow the student to gain the required theoretical background as well as being trained at real clinical sites in the biggest hospitals in UAE to refine their skills. This will expose the students to the actual situations in their field of specialty which will better prepare them to assume their role of responsibilities immediately after graduation. The college also focuses on teaching the students how to perform research and engage them during their graduation research project in proper professionally supervised scientific research. This gives the students the required knowledge to embark in development of their specialty as well as become innovative in their future career.

    CHS will soon start several MSc programs in different specialties. We also strive to continue providing exceptionally important programs with excellence and being innovative in our education and we look forward to develop new programs in the fields of health sciences in the near future. We believe in the importance of our field of work and assume our role to serve humanity and our community by continue graduating skillful individuals who can serve professionally in all health sectors and serve their countries and follow citizens.
