The Indispensable Partners of National Development.

One of the most important yardsticks of the development of a nation is the quality of health of the citizenry. Basic health services must be effectively delivered to individuals, families and communities. Capable Health Workers are duty-bound to carry out efficiently health services with the available resources.

The College of Health Sciences shares in the responsibility of attaining a healthier and productive life of the people. In support to the health goals of the country, the CHS continues to be instrumental in producing competent medical and allied health man-power to address the health needs of the communities particularly at the grassroots. Further, the College takes active role in the promotion and maintenance of health, prevention of diseases through strengthened and updated Health Sciences Education.

-From the Dean

In the realm of patient assessment, the doctor begins integrating the essential components of clinical care emphatic listening; the skill to interview patients of all ages, moods, and backgrounds; the techniques for examining the different systems of the body; and, finally, the process of clinical reasoning. There are too many variables, uncontrollable human variables. How does he learn to cope with all these? It all starts in the four corners of Med school, running through long hallways of hospitals under the supervision of dedicated mentors… doctors who take into priority needs of their students, doctors who try to assess their own teaching while remaining open to suggestions of other pedagogical scholars, doctors who continue to try to develop as teachers.

-From the Assistant Dean, Medicine Program

We pledge our lives to aid the sick, to help and serve all those in need, to build a better nation that is healthy and great…………..
