BS Health Sciences
Health defines life and its quality. It is also crucial in development of a nation. It is in this context that the Ateneo seeks to develop leaders who possess a broad and expanded view and understanding of the health sector. In preparation for this task, the BS Health Sciences (BS HSc) program was designed for future health professionals and physicians. It is an honors program that provides the seamless, integrated preparation for the professional training in the Ateneo School of Medicine and Public Health (ASMPH), which is due to open in 2007, with The Medical City as the teaching hospital. The curriculum integrates the fundamental scientific and technical background necessary for the entry into the health sciences together with the key courses in the social sciences and management. The graduates are envisioned to be leaders in both the private and public health sectors of society.
