University of Bahrain (College if Health and Sports Sciences)
The College of Health and Sport Sciences (CHSS) is a national institution. It provides high quality and comprehensive healthcare education for nurses and allied health professionals in Bahrain. The College was established in 1976, in collaboration with the American University of Beirut and The University of Illinois at Chicago under the administration of the Ministry of Health. Initially, the CHSS offered AD programs in Nursing and the Allied Health professions.
The College has developed both new facilities and new programs since then, continually responding to the changes in demand from the healthcare sector. Nursing and Allied Health education in Bahrain has evolved over the past four decades, and led to a steady increase in Bahranization of nursing and allied health human resources. Following a royal decree in 2011, the College was merged with the University of Bahrain. In 2019, the Board of Trustees of the University of Bahrain decided to merge the College of Physical Education with the College of Health Sciences as an academic department. Accordingly, the Department of Physical Education became one of the departments of the College.
