Dean, Faculty of Public Health
The Faculty of Public Health was established in 2002 as envisioned by the founding father of the Faculty. It is the first Faculty of Public Health in Nigeria and has since assumed leadership role in Public Health man power development and research.
The Faculty was carved out of the old Department of Preventive and Social Medicine. The Faculty currently has six Departments and one Institute namely: Epidemiology & Medical Statistics, Health Promotion & Education, Human Nutrition, Health Policy & Management, Environmental Health Sciences, Preventive Medicine & Primary Care and the Institute of Child Health (ICH). However both Department of Preventive & Primary Care and Institute of Child Health hold Dual Faculty Status with the Faculty of Clinical Sciences in respect of clinical programmes.
The administrative office of the Faculty of Public Health is located on the fifth floor, College of Medicine administrative building, within the University College Hospital campus. The Faculty of Public Health building named after Professor Oladele Ajose, houses all the Departments in the Faculty except Institute of Child Health and Human Nutrition. The Institute of Child Health is located close to the Oladele Ajose Building towards the main gate of the College of Medicine. While the Department of Human Nutrition is located on the main campus of the University, in-between the Faculty of Education and the Institute of African Studies. Each Department has functional internet laboratory for students.
Outstanding research and teaching continue to be the hallmark of the Faculty. The internship component of the Master of Public Health (MPH) degree is viewed as the culminating experience of our graduate academic program. It is designed to provide a meaningful opportunity for students to integrate knowledge gained during academic coursework in a professional public health setting.
