The mission of Faculty of Health Sciences is to develop and transfer knowledge in the field of health sciences, demanded for quality and safe treatment of patients.
The basic and priority task of the Faculty is to educate and prepare its graduates for successful and efficient treatment of patients with various health problems in different stages of life, for health educational work in the treatment processes and prevention activities, as well as for performing and developing organisational processes which ensure patients' and employees’ satisfaction. The Faculty provides a friendly and modern educational environment for its students, promotes their research work and encourages students’ international mobility.
Optimal conditions for educational process, research work, and development of new study programmes are ensured, as well as quality assurance on all levels of operation and organisational structure of the Faculty. Development of human resources is also fundamental for the Faculty's quality and development. Higher education teachers and associates are always supported at their expertise development, motivated for scientific and research work, and thus able to advance their careers.
The Faculty acts as a connector between health and social care and other institutions, associations, companies and enables the transfer of theoretical knowledge and research work results into practice, as well as examples of good practice into the educational process. In cooperation with partners from the environment the Faculty identifies the most current issues in health care as well as educational needs of health care providers and experts in the fields of other health sciences, competent for the effective resolution of the mentioned issues.
Nevertheless, the Faculty is constantly establishing international connections, educational and research cooperation and is integrated into different associations of schools with similar programmes, encouraging the international exchange of higher education teachers, students and associates.
Working on good interpersonal relationships between the staff members, the Faculty is developing and building up the organisational culture and loyalty of the employees.
The work of the Faculty is based on a commitment to excellence, dedication, responsibility, and innovation, contributing to the development of health sciences at the local, national and regional level. We would like to further develop the Faculty to become one of the recognizable and eligible institutions in the field of education of health workers in Slovenia and wider region.
