On behalf of the Faculty of Health Science, a warm welcome and thank you for visiting our Faculty’s webpage. This Faculty is relatively new and is comprised of the School of Nursing and the School of Medicine. Our diverse teaching faculty and staff strive to provide a high quality educational experience which is ultimately focused on supporting the growth of the health sector workforce in Samoa. This is in keeping with the National University of Samoa’s vision to being recognized "nationally, regionally and internationally as a vibrant and innovative centre of excellence" and a provider of "quality teaching and training across all disciplines".
Through rigorous programs which strengthen technical and practical competency in the fields of nursing, midwifery and medicine, our graduates are able to perform with excellence within the workplace. Many of our instructors, in addition to being practitioners in their fields of instruction, are currently pursuing or have achieved post graduate qualifications in their fields of specialty. There is also a great emphasis on research with research projects being pursued in collaboration with regional universities and recent graduates have been provided with the opportunity to gain field experience with ongoing research projects.
Please see our staff and program pages to learn more, or send us an email if you have any additional inquiries. We look forward to hearing
Faculty of Health Science"
