Knust School of Allied Health Sciences

 The Faculty is an academic home of four diverse educational programs and this website is a guide to the programs we offer. We encourage you to explore the career options provided and to learn more about our Faculty.  Each program is singularly unique with its curriculum delivered by outstanding wide-ranging teaching staff from within and outside the Faculty. The Faculty is dedicated to the education of healthcare professionals and the development of future leaders who will impact the delivery of quality healthcare worldwide. 

The Faculty of Allied Health Sciences was established about 15 years ago by the then School of Medical Sciences. The Faculty has three departments namely, the Departments of Medical Diagnostics, Nursing and Physiotherapy, and Sports Sciences; and we train professionals such as nurses, midwives, laboratory scientists, radiologists, sonographers, sports and exercise scientists, and physiotherapists.

The Faculty has well-equipped skills laboratories for the training of our students on campus but besides that, we also have access to other well-equipped facilities such as Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), Kumasi South Regional Hospitals, and Kumasi Centre for Collaborative Research (KCCR) where students have access to hi-tech equipment for training and research.

The faculty also has a Memorandum of Understanding with well-known international universities in Europe and North America such as Westminster University, Bonn University, Nottingham University, and Ramapo University among others and this has allowed our students to go abroad and learn other skills which might not be available in Ghana.

All these have made our products well trained and better prepared for the job market which has been testified by many facilities in the country and abroad where our students work. Our agents of change have been well-spoken all over the world.

Because of the nature of our programs we get several foreign students from all over the world but more especially from the sub-region into our programs. Likewise, the Faculty attracts several exchange students from Europe and North America during the summer breaks.

The faculty has also undertaken a number of research to solve local problems. Through this research, the Faculty in collaboration with its research partners have found a cure for some diseases like elephantiasis and river blindness.

The faculty is well-positioned for teaching, learning, and research to solve local problems.
