It is my pleasure to welcome you to the College of Public Health's page. The College of Public Health was established with the unlimited support of the administration of IAU, headed by His Excellency; Dr. Abdullah Al Rubaish, President of the University. And to honor this support the College of Public Health seeks to create a highly qualified educational environment for its students and the first step was to establish the College within the College of Health's Complex that makes it an ideal multi-professional environment.
The College offers a bachelor's degree in three specializations: Environmental Health, Health Information Management and Technology & Public Health. Additionally, the college offers two master programs in Public Health and Healthcare Quality and Patient Safety. Soon the College will open new postgraduate studies such as; master of science in Environmental Health as well as postgraduate diploma in Food Safety and Quality.
The College of Public Health is interested in providing a distinguished academic environment that will locally and regionally elevate the College and will graduate professionals in various public health programs through providing distinguished academic programs and scientific research, opening channels of communication and interaction with other health sectors and services to meet the growing needs of the Kingdom's population. Therefore, the College aspires to prepare students that will meet this challenge by focusing on the practical training programs and instilling concepts of lifelong learning, critical thinking, leadership and the ability to take responsibility for social, ethical and health issues.
We ask Allah to help us in our scientific progress in the health field to contribute in providing many developmental consultations for the governmental and for private health sectors due to the importance of communicating with such bodies to serve the community.
