Historical Background

The Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) was established in 1954 as an independent School of Public Health, the first of its kind in the region. The name of the school was changed to the Faculty of Health Sciences in 1978 to accommodate programs in allied health.

FHS serves to educate and train professionals and competent leaders to help meet the health needs of Lebanon and the region. Currently, FHS hosts four departments: Epidemiology and Population Health (EPH), Environmental Health (EH), Health Promotion and Community Health (HPCH), and Health Management and Policy (HMP); and a Division of Health Professions hosting three programs in collaboration with the Faculty of Medicine: Medical Audiology Sciences, Medical Imaging Sciences and Medical Laboratory Sciences. FHS offers a BS degree in: Environmental Health, Medical Audiology Sciences1, Medical Imaging Sciences and Medical Laboratory Sciences; a BA degree in Health Communication; an MS in Public Health (MPH) (concentrations in Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Health Promotion and Community Health, and Health Management and Policy); and an MS in Epidemiology. FHS also offers an MS in Environmental Sciences, major: Environmental Health (as part of an Interfaculty Graduate Environmental Sciences Program), an Executive Master in Health Care Leadership, and a PhD program in Epidemiology. In addition, FHS provides teaching of public health to students in the Faculty of Medicine.

Accreditation

In October 2006, the Public Health Program (PHP) of the Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) became accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) and was reaccredited in 2012 for seven years term extending to 2019. In December 2019, the CEPH Board voted to renew the accreditation of the program for another seven- year term ending in 2026. The PHP includes the Master of Public Health, Master of Science in Epidemiology, Master of Science in Environmental Health, and the PhD in Epidemiology, as well as the newly launched Bachelor of Arts in Health Communication and most recently, in 2021, the Bachelor of Science in Environmental Health. CEPH is an independent agency in the United States, which is recognized to accredit schools and programs of public health. The PHP at FHS was the first graduate public health program to be accredited by CEPH outside the Americas and remains the only program in the Arab region. Accreditation indicates that the PHP of the FHS meets standards for Public Health Education of leading schools of public health in the world.

Mission

To improve the health of populations and advance the public health discipline and field of health professions in the region and beyond, through excellence in education, research, and community engagement.

Vision

The leading academic voice and driver for equity, justice, and better health in the Arab region and beyond.
