The vision of the College of Health Sciences is to provide world class quality education with the aim of generating knowledge, technology, and health-care education at a global level.

In recognition of the need to provide the best medical intervention in Nigeria, the management of Nile University of Nigeria has worked assiduously to set up the College of Health Sciences with a focus on providing the best medical school that will train pioneers who will come up with groundbreaking innovations in the medical field.

The Faculty’s approach to teaching, learning, and assessment is focused on the practical application of skills and knowledge. Our modern approach to learning include smart boards and the use of mobile technologies. With access to comprehensive world class laboratories, which include clinical skills lab, physiology lab, pathology lab, bio-chemistry lab, microbiology lab, pharmacology lab, anatomy lab and anatomy museum, students get to combine theoretical learning with extensive practical and simulations.

In line with international accreditation criteria, students in their first and second year are taught basic first aid and clinical skills with the use of robots. Alongside the use of the world class Nizamiye Hospital as the Teaching Hospital, the College has also entered into academic partnerships with 5 hospitals in the FCT to ensure well-rounded exposure and quality medical education.
