Health Sciences

Message from the Dean

Welcome to the Faculty of Allied Health Science of MAHSA University website. The faculty comprises of 4 departments, namely the Department of Physiotherapy, Department of Biomedical Science, Department of Medical Imaging and Department of Environment Health. The programmes available are:

– 4 diploma programmes

– 2 franchise degree programmes from Northumbria University, UK
(Bachelor of Biomedical Sciences and Bachelor of Physiotherapy Science)

– 4 degree home-grown programmes
(Bachelor of Environmental Health, Bachelor of Medical Imaging, Bachelor of Biomedical Science and Bachelor of Physiotherapy)

We are committed to creating an environment of active learning and student centred instruction that develops practitioners who learn, practice and lead in high standards for the profession. The education of our students is our priority. Our faculty members place a high value on teaching, practice and research as reflected in our work with students. We aim at developing competent healthcare professionals for tomorrow’s need. We desire to provide opportunities for our students who wish to continue lifelong learning. The faculty plans to develop new programmes which include post graduate studies in specific disciplines.

We take pride in our graduates who are employed in a multitude of healthcare settings. Some have gone on to advance their studies locally and abroad. Some of the physiotherapy graduates have started their own practice and become entrepreneurs. Our foreign graduates have gone back to their countries of origin to serve their people. It is exciting to see such progress and that is a motivating factor for us to move on.

The faculty plans in the near future to focus on building a community of healthy students through organising health related activities as part of the extracurricular activities. It is our desire that our students of health sciences not only excel academically but also develop their soft skills.
