Pengiran Anak Puteri Rashidah Sa’adatul Bolkiah Institute of Health Sciences (PAPRSB IHS), which was formerly known as Institute of Medicine, was inaugurated in September 2000. It was established in line with the vision of the Government of Brunei Darussalam to provide medical training not only to Brunei students but also to students from other parts of this region as expressed by His Majesty the Sultan in his speech during the twelfth Convocation.

The Institute started its first programmes in collaboration with established international universities. The Biomedical Science undergraduate programme was set up in 2001 with University of Queensland, Australia which continued until 2005. The Medicine programme was introduced in 2004 when the Institute offered students with articulation medical degrees with partner medical schools in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. 

Nearly a decade after it was first established, PAPRSB Institute of Health Sciences has now grown both academically and administratively, especially with the integration of PAPRSB College of Nursing, into the Institute.

Undergraduate programmes across four main disciplines are now offered:

  • Medicine
  • Biomedical Sciences
  • Nursing
  • Midwifery

The programmes are products of a continuous review of the curricula. Indeed, all the undergraduate and graduate programmes as well as diplomas have recently undergone major enhancements and are now also designed to encourage innovation and entrepreneurship, and for students to assume leadership roles, tempered with a keen awareness of the environment.


PAP Rashidah Sa’adatul Bolkiah Institute of Health Sciences is determined to be recognised as a top ranking health sciences education, research, and service institution in Asia.
