BRIEF HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE
The College of Health Sciences is one of the pioneer Colleges of Osun State University, established at the inception of the University in September, 2007. Although the College has accreditation by the National University Commission to offer MBBS degree, the program was suspended during the 2012/2013 academic session due to lack of dedicated teaching hospital.
