We are pleased to welcome you to the website of the School of Health Sciences (SHS) at the Modern University for Business and Science (MUBS).
The SHS was established in 2013 based on the need of well-trained professionals in the health service sector in the Middle East. This claim was previously echoed in the World Health Organization Report (2006) “Working together for health”, which stressed on the need to clarify and strengthen the role of healthcare professionals at the country level.
SHS aims to build on the university’s vision of being a modern, innovative, and a leading academic and research institute in Lebanon and in the region. The mission of SHS is to improve the health and care of individuals and communities in our country, our region, and globally through research, learning, and practice.
The foundations of SHS are three modern departments that reflect our core mission and dedication to civic responsibility, health and environmental awareness, and scientific research. The departments of Nutrition, Optometry and Vision Science, and Public Health will form the launch pad for a growing faculty that we hope will become a template for other scientific programs and other research centers in the region.
Our School provides its students with innovative, academic, and career-oriented experiences and opportunities for learning in Aley, Damour, and Beirut campuses. Such experiences start in the classroom, continue in the cutting-edge laboratories, and are enriched with exposure to the latest scientific discoveries. Training for the aforementioned majors is offered with practical experience in some of the major hospitals in Lebanon as well as various private clinics and healthcare centers.
The School of Health Sciences has had a very successful start. This stems from the continuous efforts of its faculty and staff to contribute new approaches in teaching, research, and community engagement that are pivotal for the success of our students.
I am thrilled by the opportunity to partake in this pioneering academic and research approach in the field of health sciences and I am confident that our School will emerge as an internationally renowned center that will exceed your expectations and offer you unique opportunities and a prosperous future.
