Faculty of Health Science

Message from the Dean

You are welcome to the Faculty of Health Sciences, National Open University of Nigeria. The Faculty was established recently, arising from the need to provide lifelong learning for health workers.  The Faculty attempts to ensure that training emphasizes relevance, rather than just academic knowledge. The Faculty is intended to achieve two closely related objectives; one is to produce a broad range of health manpower that will serve the depressed and underserved rural and peri-urban communities in Nigeria, and the other is to design test programme models for health manpower development that would be replicable in various parts of the country, and hopefully in other countries of the world where health conditions are similar to those of Nigeria.
