Welcome

2010 saw several changes being introduced at the Fiji School of Medicine, one of which is the merger into the Fiji National University.  Under this banner, the Fiji School of Medicine and the Fiji School of Nursing merged to be collectively known as the College of Medicine, Nursing & Health Sciences. Both institutions strive towards Excellence in Training and Education of Health Professionals in the South Pacific.

As the premier medical institutions in the South Pacific, both FSM and FSN have been educating Health Care Professionals since their establishment in 1885 and 1893 respectively. The Schools have produced many motivated and skilled health care professionals who are now serving in key positions in the South Pacific and overseas.

The schools provide training in health science disciplines including medicine, nursing, dentistry, pharmacy, physiotherapy, radiography, laboratory technology, public health, dietetics and environmental health.
