Welcome! The Faculty of Health Sciences at the Dominica State College provides its students with an opportunity to become world-class health professional. The team of dedicated, highly qualified faculty remain grounded in current practice so as to make the learning experience one that will benefit our students in a rewarding career in the health sector.
The Faculty has an integrated relationship with its clinical partner, the Ministry of Health, to ensure that there is a sound linkage between the theory taught and clinical competency. Currently we offer the Bachelor’s Degree in General Nursing, Bachelor’s Degree in Midwifery, Associate Degree in Pharmacy, Associate Degree in Environmental Health and Certificate in Practical Nursing. Each of these programmes are designed to be locally relevant and internationally competitive. We are actively exploring the possibilities of preparing other cadres of health care providers to meet the dynamic needs of the Dominica Health Sector.
We invite you to join our Health Sciences family and become part of a tradition that had its humble beginnings some 55 years ago. Our graduates are health care providers who have the skills, capacity and framework to deliver health related services that leads to better health care outcomes for all.
