Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC)

Faculty of Allied Health Sciences (FAHS) offers three-degree programmes namely; B.Sc. in Medical Laboratory Sciences, B.Sc. in Nursing and Bachelor of Pharmacy degree. Quality of these progrmmes were monitored by the Medical Education Cell (MEC) of the Faculty of Medicine for a long time, but in order to meet the vision of the allied health programmes, the 425th Senate of the University of Jaffna initiated the Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) at the FAHS. A coordinator has been appointed for the Cell, who is working with the Internal Quality Assurance Unit of the University of Jaffna to improve standards. IQAC at the FAHS is composed of arrangements to provide assurance of learning with confidence, and awareness throughout the institution.

Functions and Responsibilities:

IQAC shall design action plans and implementation mechanisms to ensure that the Quality principles (Best practices) are actually practiced by the faculty. The ‘‘best practices” are dynamic and continuous. They are the result of identification, experimentation, reflection, feedback and innovation based on experience. Best practices are amenable to documentation and have the potential for replication; they are transparent, accountable, affordable and accessible to both staff and students, and add value to an institution. They are contextual and influenced by many factors. Best Practices show the path to success through continuous improvement leading to the benchmark of excellence.
