Message from the Dean, Dr. G Arun Maiya

Welcome to Manipal College of Health Professions (MCHP), the first and largest full-fledged college of health sciences in the country. As health care professions, we constitute 60% of the healthcare systems in developed countries and contribute to the delivery of health-related services for evaluation, identification & prevention of disorders, rehabilitation and health systems management.

The need for these professionals has now been realised and strategies are being evolved to scale up their number. This was realised much earlier at Manipal Academy of Higher Education, resulting in carving out Manipal College of Health Professions (formerly known as School of Allied Health Sciences) in 1999 to train health professionals of calibre. The courses offered are specifically designed to prepare graduates and post graduates for rewarding careers in the nationally and globally growing healthcare industry. The majority of the alumni of the college are placed overseas in universities, hospitals, healthcare teams and in private practice.

MCHP takes pride in its faculty, and it attracts a large number of overseas observers to its various departments and has on its roll, students from over 23 countries. We offer an intellectually stimulating environment coupled with rich cultural, social, sporting and harmonious life of the university campus. I take this opportunity to welcome you to our college and look forward to be a part of your successful professional career.
