Institute of Applied Medical Sciences (IAMS) was founded in 2003 as a vocational training institute, accredited in 2008 as a higher institute (HIAMS) by the Ministry of Higher Education, extended in 2012 to include Higher Institute of Applied Engineering and Business Studies (HIAEBS) and now evolving into University Institutes of Applied Studies (UIAS).

We are fully committed and engaged in Total Quality Management in higher education, a continues process of evaluation and improvement with the vision of becoming the most outstanding private higher education institution in Cameroon by 2020.



Vision 2020

HIAMS has evolved and expanded successfully into a professional HND and BTech training institution with the new inclusion of HIAEBS.

Over the last 8 years, we have developed, and delivered world class curricula with grants from British Council, faculty from University of East Anglia, University of Buea and support from University of Texas Medical Branch.

We have produced the best graduates in HND Nursing 2011 and 2013. Some of our graduates enjoy well-paid jobs in Cameroon, while others are pursuing their careers or education at home and abroad (in Nigeria, South Africa, USA and UK).

 We have acquired land and currently building a facility that can accommodate 2000 students. We also have an online platform that can deliver our programmes to students in their workplace or community.

 With our current enrolment of just under 200 students and the ‘building blocks‘ in place, we are now set for our rapid expansion phase.

 It is now time for all our stakeholders to grab the future with both hands, for our steep ascend into the world of excellence and opportunities for our staff and students, while transforming HIAMS and HIAEBS into a full house University Institutes of Applied Studies before 2020.
