Message from the Dean

The Faculty of Public Health (FPH) of Antonine University (UA) grew up progressively but efficiently, starting with the Department of Nursing Sciences (DNS) since 1999, pursuing with the Department of Physical Therapy (DPT) in 2006, and then incorporating the Department of Dental Laboratory Technology (DDLT) in 2015, the latter being the oldest in the history of UA.

The Department of Nursing Sciences is devoted to versatility, responsibility, initiative, and decision making, coping in the field of individual and collective health and more so to build holistic dimensions in the students, to form qualified and humanistic nurses, capable of handling all medical and surgical situations both elective and critical. This department, implemented in three different Lebanese regions, has widely extended abroad, namely in Belgium (Louvain) and in Canada (Laval).

Approved and engaged in an international accreditation program with the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT), the Department of Physical Therapy is committed to forging remarkable physical therapists: autonomic, scientific, professional, managing tasks with high degree of evidence-based knowledge, humanistic achievements without denying or missing the qualification requirements of the Lebanese Order of Physical Therapists and those of the Ministry of Public Health. They can be practitioners, consultants, teachers, researchers in clinical and interdisciplinary context as well.

The Department of Dental Laboratory Technology offers a high-quality educational program targeted to near perfection, meeting all the challenges of science evolution with a very advanced outstanding laboratory for training and practice, in collaboration and coordination with Amann Girrbach Society.
