About the Faculty

 The Faculty of Health Sciences is located on three campuses: at the St. Georges Health Complex in Achrafieh, Beirut; on the UOB Main Campus (Al-Kurah) near Tripoli; and on the Souk el Gharb campus. Undergraduate Al-Kurah CampusBSc degrees are offered in Health Promotion, Medical Laboratory Sciences, Nursing (in English or French), Nutritional Sciences, and Public Health and Development Sciences. There are also possibilities available to complete pre-Medical requirements and dual degrees, and a minor degree. Graduate MS degrees can be pursued in Clinical Laboratory Sciences and a professional Masters degree in Laboratory Sciences with a Laboratory Management focus. The Master in Public Health (MPH) with a Community Health track was launched in Fall 2015. A Master in Nursing is expected to be launched in AY 2016/17​.

The Faculty is committed to excellence in health education, research and service to the community. There are many special features that help us work towards this outcome:

  • Academic programs that link education with community work in the environment, school health, community health and nutrition, health advocacy, mental health promotion, health awareness campaigns, landmine risk awareness and victim rehabilitation, and many others…
  • Co-academic and co-curricular activities, in partnerships with governmental/non-governmental institutions and organizations, expand teamwork and leadership abilities, and build foundations for understanding, networking and commitment.
  • Partnerships with St. Georges Hospital University Medical Center and with Hospitals and clinics in the North and throughout Lebanon​ facilitate hands-on clinical and practical training.
  • Multi-disciplinary curricula that equip graduates with the professional competencies and skills needed to meet the challenges of the work environment in today's health sector.
  • Optional joint degree in BSc and pre-Medical requirements.

One of the most powerful assets of our Faculty is its supportive and friendly atmosphere, which creates strong bonds between students, and between faculty and students. Classes are small-sized, and instructors offer individual attention and mentoring to their students, working side-by-side in numerous projects and community activities.​​
