FHS is committed to a vision and a role that set a model for academic public health in the region, and redefine leadership as a commitment to lead by example. The faculty thrives to be an advocate for public health as much as a leader and a path setter in public health education and research.
Our core mission is 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.
Academically, the faculty serves through its programs the well-being of people and communities by conducting research and service that influence policy and practice, and preparing competent health professionals become agents of change in society.
FHS also contributes to knowledge and the improvement of the public's health in Lebanon and the region by:
Conducting scholarly and relevant research and by responding to priority health issues and training needs in collaboration with stakeholders.
Preparing professionals in the disciplines of public health and health sciences through graduate and undergraduate programs, and introducing future physicians to public health.
Moreover, since the voices of the people of the Arab region and the specificities of its public health context were largely absent from international dialogue, The Faculty of Health Sciences in AUB also commits to an advocacy role-serving as a platform for engaging the international community in the public health context of the Arab region, and as a result, influencing the global public health discourse.
The Faculty of Health Sciences exercises these functions, while at the same time, it promotes and adheres to the principles of ethics, social justice, and collective responsibility.
