Bula to All.

I am pleased to welcome you to Umanand Prasad School of Medicine & Health Sciences (UPSM&HS) at the University of Fiji. From its humble beginning in 2008, UPSM&HS has enjoyed unprecedented growth and prestige- and there is more to come. The bright future at UPSM&HS continues to unfold through innovative medical training initiatives, all made possible by our extraordinary faculty and students.

We are known for innovations in medical  education that have consistently placed us among the best medical schools in the region for medical education and the most sought after among students who wish to pursue a career in medicine locally. We have focused on three initiatives at UPSM&HS to ensure quality medical education: curriculum redesign to ensure updated teaching; international recognition of UPSM&HS; and enhancement of clinical training for future doctors. These initiatives will collectively address the growing shortage of doctors and public health workers in Fiji and the region.

Medical school challenges the best and the brightest minds to learn the science of medicine and public health, and the art of compassionate care. I invite you to consider UPSM&HS as an equally exciting and rewarding destination for your medical and scientific training.
