About us

Fatima College of Health Sciences (FCHS) was founded in 2006 with a vision to be the leading provider for health education in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Initially, the only degree offered by the college was a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Nursing. The program was designed to graduate Emirati students in nursing and to provide continuous improvement for existing diploma holder nurses in the health sector.

Due to an increasing demand in the UAE for allied healthcare workers, FCHS in 2011 commenced four new programs viz. Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, Radiography and Medical Imaging and Emergency Health (Paramedics) leading to a Bachelor’s degree. FCHS programs have been expanded with the introduction of Psychology in 2019 and Midwifery in 2022.

FCHS is lead from the Abu Dhabi campus in Mafraq, with additional campuses in Al Ain, Al Dhafra and Ajman. In these environments, the College constantly strives to provide a supportive environment for students, enabling a maximization of potential. Innovative programs and working with exceptional academics and healthcare professionals enrich the learning experience. In addition to Bachelor degrees, FCHS offers exit diploma in different specialties.

FCHS programs are contextualized to the UAE and impart the requisite knowledge, skills, and values to empower graduates to thrive and advance in the healthcare profession. FCHS graduates meet the UAE’s healthcare delivery demands and effectively work in a variety of settings with diverse patients, families and communities. Equipped with exceptional training facilities and relevant work experience, FCHS graduates are well positioned to make substantial contributions to national life by assuming supervisory roles and developing leadership skills for the UAE healthcare sector.

The college is currently seeking to expand beyond its bachelor programs by developing postgraduate diploma and master’s degree programs in specialized Health Science disciplines.
