HISTORY
The Faculty of Health Sciences and Technology was established when the Medical School of University of Nigeria was converted into the College of Medicine. The Medical School which was part of the Faculty of Medicine began in 1987 just before the Civil War and began again after the Civil War with students admitted for the first time in October, 1970.

In 1976, the Faculty Board of Medicine resolved that a College of Medicine be established. It was not until February 24, 1982 that the Senate gave its consent for the establishment of the College and University Council at its 118th meeting on March 3rd, 1982 approved that the College of Medicine be established.

The Federal Ministry of Education and the Federal Executive Council following the approval given by the NUC on March, 1982, gave their approval on June 9th and July 29th, 1982 respectively. The College of Medicine of the University of Nigeria formally became a reality with the signing of the University of Nigeria statute No. 2 by the then President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Alhaji Shehu Shagari, on December 3rd, 1982.

The College began with two faculties -
The Faculty of Medical Sciences and Dentistry and the Faculty of Health Sciences and Technology.

Following elections held on December 7th, 1982, Professor R. M. Anikwe became the first Provost of the College of Medicine and Professor S.C. Ohaegbulam became the first Dean of new Faculty of Medical Sciences and Dentistry. The Vice-Chancellor appointed Professor B. C. Umerah as the Acting Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences and Technology. He was subsequently elected the first Dean of the Faculty in 1983.

The Faculty of Health Sciences and Technology which started with the Departments of Nursing Sciences; Medical Laboratory Sciences and Medical Radiography took its first set of students in

the 1983/84session.  The remaining Departments, Medical Rehabilitation took its first set of students in the 1985/86 session, while Health Administration and Management ( the newest Department ) had its  first admission of students in 2004/2005 session. The Department of Health Administration and Management started with both the undergraduate and postgraduate programs, but is presently offering only Postgraduate programe.

 

OBJECTIVES OF THE FACULTY OF HEALTH SCIENCES AND TECHNOLOGY

 The objectives of the Faculty are to produce graduates who will:
1. Have broad knowledge on modern diagnostic and treatment procedures
2. Meet the health needs of the society according to international best practices
3. Have competent managerial abilities
4. Have good interpersonal relationship to function effectively as members of the health team
5. Be competent in research for the benefit of the society
6. Have passion for their profession and compassion for their clients/patients.

PHILOSOPHY OF THE FACULTY OF HEALTH SCIENCES AND TECHNOLOGY

In line with the philosophy of University of Nigeria, the Faculty of Health Sciences and Technology, which consists of five Departments (Health Administration and Management, Medical Laboratory Sciences, Nursing Sciences, Medical Radiography and Radiological Sciences and Medical Rehabilitation), is designed to train students for a career in all spheres of health care.  The programs are aimed at providing the students with a broad and sound professional, scientific and technological foundation for best practices in health and academic sectors nationally and internationally.
