Haldia Institute of Health Sciences was established in the year, 2003 by the Indian Centre for Advancement of Research and Education (ICARE); Haldia, keeping in mind the growing demand of the health care professionals and trained personnel in the ever increasing health care and health service sector. Right to health, as we all know, is one of the fundamental rights endowed by the Constitution of India. To provide quality healthcare service, there are various statutory bodies regulating education and training in various fields of health care services. Haldia Institute of Health Sciences always abides by this as we are committed to maintain highest standard of quality in health care education that we provide. As one of the pioneering institutions in the allied health sciences in eastern India and one of the biggest college conducting courses in allied health sciences in this part of the country, we are responsible to set the benchmark for others to follow.
Haldia Institute of Health Sciences has been enriched by aspiring students of the state and surrounding states like Tripura, Assam, Jharkhand, Bihar, Orissa, Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh etc. Initially we started with two undergraduate courses, Bachelor of Physiotherapy (BPT) and Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Technology (BMLT). In 2023, we are conducting three regular diploma courses, six regular under-graduate degree courses and six regular post graduate courses under several departments.
The efficacy of the Health care and service sector requires a well synchronized team work. The team is composed of well trained and efficient personnel from various interrelated fields. Allied health is a term used to describe the broad range of health professionals who are not Doctors. Allied health professionals aim to prevent, diagnose and treat a range of conditions and illnesses and often work within a multi-disciplinary health team to provide the best patient outcome.
There is always a dearth for the qualified and skilled personnel in this sector as it is one of the fastest growing sectors. Our main objective is to impart quality instead of quantity in the healthcare education. To implement this objective is a difficult process. We have been able to maintain the highest standard so far as our students have been securing top positions in the University Examinations year after year.
The college is located at the heart of the port city of Haldia, a Kilometer away from the ‘Ranichawk’ Bus Stop and ‘Bandar’ and ‘Haldia’ railway stations. Important landmarks of Haldia like Haldia Development Authority building, Haldia Court, Haldia Municipality office, Ambuja Neotia City Centre, HIT are at walking distance from the college.
The college is recognized by UGC u/s 2(f) of the UGC Act. 1956, MHRD, Govt. of India, Directorate of Medical Education (DME), Swasthya Bhawan, Govt. of West Bengal and Dept. of Higher Education, Bikash Bhawan, Govt. of West Bengal.
