Message from the Executive Director
Nepalese Army Institute of Health Sciences (NAIHS) was established in the year 2010 and is affiliated to Tribhuwan University, the oldest university of the country.
The institute is settled in Kathmandu valley and is surrounded by lush green mountains along with the peaks of the majestic Himalayas on the north side of the valley.
As a non-profit organization, NAIHS is a self-reliant health institution of international standard. It has also been envisaged as a prestigious center for biomedical and health system research.
Our main vision is to provide quality healthcare to the patients, conforming to scientific and ethical standards and to be a teaching hospital of distinction; setting the highest standards in Patient Care, Medical Education, Training and Research. Our mission is to improve the health of Nepalese people by providing quality health care services through training of our compassionate, caring, communicative and socially accountable health team.
NAIHS not only plays an important role in the well-being of Nepalese citizens but also indirectly contributes to affect the economic and overall development of the nation.
Although, NAIHS is still in its nascent state; it has managed to expand its medical education and is currently having three colleges under its wings -College of Medicine, College of Nursing, and College of Medical Polytechnic. Each of these colleges is further expanding their medical educational branches from certificate level to master level. Postdoctoral super specialty courses such as DM/Mch will also be started soon.
Tutoring medical education is inconceivable without an exceptional and fully operative academic hospital. Students of medicine, nursing and polytechnic colleges gain their practical skills at Shree Birendra Hospital at Chhauni (SBH). SBH, the second oldest hospital of Nepal, is the continuation of Tri-Chandra Military Hospital established in 1925 AD (1982 BS). It is a state of the art multidisciplinary, well equipped modern hospital having all clinical and non-clinical departments. A modern simulation-based skill teaching lab is also a part of this modern teaching hospital and is equipped with technologically advanced manikins. All operating theaters are well equipped with modern technologies. All sorts of urological, neurological, gastrointestinal, orthopedic, trauma, ENT, ophthalmic and other surgeries are performed by a team of highly qualified surgeons. All physicians, surgeons and residents work together as a team with a well-qualified nursing staff to provide quality health services to all patients without discrimination.
NAIHS not only pursues to inculcate the core values of health care professionals but also imparts the behavior and communication skills to their future generations. The institute is also open to scientific and practical innovations and discussions.
I warmly welcome all of our future students and their parents to visit and explore our prestigious institution in person.
