FACULTY OF HEALTH SCIENCES
Conducting excellent research and creating the next generation of science talent in Nigeria have never been more important. The school ensures it delivers high-quality, research-enriched learning and teaching programs which offer students the opportunity to pursue a career in an allied health profession; in a corporate role in health; or as academics/health sciences researchers and to increase participation of students from culturally and socially diverse backgrounds in order to build a health workforce appropriate for Australia’s social and cultural diversity. The Faculty of health sciences accomplishes both of these, playing a key role in Nigeria’s ability to compete scientifically on the world stage.
The Faculty of Health Sciences is headed by Professor. J.N.B Nnadozie (a Professor of Optometry). The Faculty of Health Sciences is made up of three Departments, namely:
1. Department of Optometry
