It gives me great pleasure to welcome you all to the electronic site of the College of Health Sciences (CHS). In 1998, under the guidance of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council, Ruler of Sharjah, CHS was established to educate highly skilled health workers in different specializations to fulfill the needs of all health sectors in UAE and in the region. The college offers seven accredited undergraduate programs, namely:
- Medical Laboratory Sciences (MLS)
- Medical Diagnostic Imaging (MDI)
- Nursing (Nsg)
- Health Services Administration (HSA)
- Physiotherapy (PT)
- Environmental Health Sciences (EHS)
- Clinical Nutrition and Dietetics (CN&D).
CHS students will enjoy an education and university life full of valuable knowledge supported with specialized clinical training that will enable them serve patients and the community. This unique feature of CHS programs, when compared to other colleges, will raise the students' sense of the importance and impact of what their studies on humanity in general and on our community in particular. The outcome of CHS programs are specialized graduates aware of the importance of their field of work and skilled to serve and help those in need.
The college utilizes state-of-the-art educational materials and techniques to enable students to gain the required theoretical background and acquire and refine their practical skills through training at clinical sites in some of the biggest hospitals in UAE. This exposes the students to actual situations in their fields of specialty, whichmakes them better prepared to assume their roles of responsibility immediately after graduation. The college also focuses on teaching the students how to conduct research and involves them in professionally supervised scientific research during their graduation research projects. This provides them with the required knowledge and skills to embark on a journey of development and innovation in their future careers.
CHS will soon start several MSc programs in different specialties. We also strive to continue providing significant programs with excellence and being innovative in our educational approach. We look forward to developing new programs in the fields of health sciences in the near future. We believe in the importance of our field of work and performing our role to serve humanity and our community by training skillful healthcare professionals who can serve their countries and fellow citizens.
