Dean's message

Welcome to the Faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University.

Our extraordinary and diverse community of faculty, staff and students shares a common vision—to improve the health and well-being of all people, in collaboration with local, national and global partners.

Our faculty and students are engaged in research that seeks solutions for some of the world’s most critical problems. Our research spans a wide range of areas including mental health and addictions, infectious and chronic diseases, environmental challenges from climate change and contaminants, improving health services for vulnerable populations, designing livable urban environments, and developing equitable social and health policies and practices.

I invite you to explore our Faculty’s educational programs, accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). We offer Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts programs, as well as a Master in Public Health, Master of Science and PhD programs. Our graduating students are equipped with the skills required to adapt to the changing needs of a health-related workforce, and our uniquely interdisciplinary programs enable our graduates to tackle complex societal challenges with the required breadth of knowledge.

Come visit us and get to know the remarkable people who contribute to the distinctiveness of SFU Health Sciences.
